The alternative is returning a three-tuple status, headers,
content-iterable, right?

I would definitely prefer just returning a three-tuple instead of the
crappy start_response callback that returns a write callable. It makes
applications easier to write, and the unified model should also make
server implemation easier. It also combines nicely with yield from in
some cases.
