No, these are used by GdaDataModel. For instance:
(I guess the data model creates and manipulates iterators. That makes

DataModel create Iter is Ok. But it returns a DataModelIter object and you can create more iters if you want, then i_iter_next virtual function must be implemented by Provider but called on the required Iter I guess.

If this are the behavior then (in an hipotetical condition) if some one implement a new Provider using Vala will use i_iter_next (and other iter related virtual functions) override directly right?

Just to help feature Providers:

Are there any help (I didn't find them) to implement GdaDataModel interface?

For Providers is only required to subclass GdaDataModelSelect class? What about iterator's virtual functions? Are they implemented by DataModelSelect?

You mean virtual rather than static, I guess.

That's not unusual at all. It's not a problem.

most functions must be in the object used by them to perform the action.

I don't understand this part.

Is the same as happened on Gda Easy's functions: move this functions as part of the object used, i.e.
