Defines a common interface for all content entity objects.

Content entities use fields for all their entity properties and are translatable and revisionable, while translations and revisions can be enabled per entity type. It's best practice to always implement ContentEntityInterface for content-like entities that should be stored in some database, and enable/disable revisions and translations as desired.

When implementing this interface which extends Traversable, make sure to list IteratorAggregate or Iterator before this interface in the implements clause.
