AFAIK, no clear consensus, but my opinion is that we should use iterator-based
as primary interface and stream-based as complementary.

Yes, this concept is based on the traditional load/store architecture [1]
If we consider stream of bytes as memory and objects as equivalent of
registers, then
load - loads value from memory into object
store - stores value from object back into memory
