Letting RegExp method return something iterable?

At the moment, the following two methods abuse regular expressions as iterators (if the /g flag is set):

* `RegExp.prototype.test()`
* `RegExp.prototype.exec()`

Would it make sense to create similar methods that return something iterable, so that for-of can iterate over the result?
