It would be okay to let ValuesView inherit from Collection.

Am marking this a 3.7 only because it isn't important to anyone's actual code and there is no known use case.  Technically, it isn't even a bug.  The __contains__ method is supported implicitly (as it is for many classes that just define __iter__), so there is no requirement that this be recognized as a Collection.  Also, the existing behavior was explicitly tested (see line 848 in Lib/test/test_collections).

I'm going forward with this because it does offer a sense of neatness (in comparison to KeysView and ItemsView) and it might avoid a pedantic StackOverflow question somewhere down the line.
