New submission from Akira Li:

The entry for *dict view* in the glossary may be clarified, to avoid
confusion with collection.abc.Sequence i.e., from:

  They are lazy sequences that will see changes in the underlying

to something like:

  They provide a dynamic view on the dictionary’s entries, which means
  that when the dictionary changes, the view reflects these changes.

See https://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-ideas/2015-October/036682.html

I've attached the corresponding doc patch.
