Walter Dörwald added the comment:
That analysis seems correct to me.
Stateless and stream codecs were the original implementation. 2006 I implemented incremental codecs: http://bugs.python.org/issue1436130
The intent was to have stateful codecs that can work with iterators and generators.
When Guido began reimplementing the io machinery for Python 3 he used incremental codecs as the basis.
