It is correct.  While 'yield from coro()', where 'coro()' is an 'async
def' coroutine would make sense in some contexts, it would require
coroutines to implement the iteration protocol.  That would mean that
you could write 'for x in coro()', which is meaningless for coroutines
in all contexts.  Therefore, coroutines do not implement the iterator
