[concurrency-interest] Deque missing tail to head iterator.

Is the absence of "tail to head" iterator (Iterator<E> descendingIterator())
an intensional design decision? I would think since the Deque has two ends
a user would be able to iterate from either end. The most apparent case
for the "tail to head" iterator is the asLifoQueue class as it currently
iterates from "head to tail".
An RFE was filed against the Stack
http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=4475301 for this issue.
Then again, that bug got zero votes so it must not be too important or maybe
that could be attributed to the number of Stack users. Just kidding.
