Well, it could be argued that testing for an Iterator is useful for a
significant variety of code, while testing for a JSONSerialiazable
doesn't have an use case outside of the json module itself.

Besides, it remains to be seen if anyone will use the Iterator ABC
instead of directly looking up the __next__ method. I'm not convinced
that all of the ABCs bundled with the stdlib are really useful, apart
from showcasing the potentialities of ABCs.
