Raymond Hettinger <raymond.hettinger at gmail.com> added the comment:

The term "mapping" is in lowercase and refers to the generic concept of a mapping as defined in the glossary.  This is distinct from the capital letter classes "Mapping" and "MutableMapping" as provided in the collections.abc module.  It is the former meaning that is intended.

Thank you for the suggestion.
