In Python 2, the class was called “dictproxy”, the repr() used “dict_proxy” with an underscore, and it is exposed as types.DictProxyType. So I guess that is where the term comes from. In Python 3.3, Issue 14386 renamed the class and repr() to “mappingproxy”, and re-introduced it to types as MappingProxyType. (DictProxyType was previously removed in revision 15649aef2db5.)

So in Python 3 I would probably change it from “dictproxy” to a types.MappingProxyType link.
