It's not Proxy. Per the "Problem" solved by "Proxy" on the web site
"You need to support resource-hungry objects, and you do not want
to instantiate such objects unless and until they are actually
requested by the client."
That's definitely not the problem being solved.
I think the "Problem" desc for "Facade" is a good match:
"A segment of the client community needs a simplified interface
to the overall functionality of a complex subsystem."
The interface is "simplified" by essentially removing the modification
