Yes it is.
I'd call them item_iterator (or itemiter), key_iterator, and
I can't explain why but putting `iter' first in the name makes it less
readable to me.
Also consider things like `range_iterator'/`rangeiter' (analogous to
xrange) and `pair_iterator'/`pairiter' (lockstep iterator over two
sequences) vs. `iterrange' and `iterpair'. `iterrange' and `iterpair'
definitely convey the wrong semantics (i.e., a range/pair of
iterators instead of a iterator over a range/pair).
