This bit of the example, at least, is not compliant with PEP 333:

"To put this requirement another way, a middleware component
must yield at least one value each time its underlying
application yields a value. If the middleware cannot yield
any other value, it must yield an empty string."

I suspect rewriting the example to conform to PEP 333 will make this proposal much more complex?
