for sure, at some level of abstraction this ought to be true,
since CPS simulates call-by-value in a call-by-name language,

cf. Gordon Plotkin: Call-by-Name, Call-by Value and the Lambda Calculus
TCS , Vol. 1, pp. 125-159, http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/gdp/publications/

and the purpose of  iteratee is to  "provide strict [...] I/O"
