We considered having Enumeration extend Iterator and provide next() and hasNext() defaults which called the Enumeration methods but found, unfortuantely that there were several Enumeration implementations that already had next().

If we were to provide a Collections util it would to wrap Enumeration as an Iterator but that's it.
