No it doesn't but it's sometimes convenient.
My use case is the regex-compressing code. It can be reduced to (pseudocode)

join(regex-so-far, wordsList., separator=")|(", prefix="(", suffix=")")

granted, it can be done with explicit append calls but then you can't
inline it (e.g in streams).

The code used to take the whole container, but there's a use case for
iterating over a slice only.
