This is a second RFC for adding the “Slipcase” to the list of packaging

Slipcases are commonly used to package several mediums together, as well
as occasionally for just a single medium (cassette singles are the most
common use of this)

I propose also adding a section[1] to the style guide within
Style/Release. This should cover the objections raised in the previous RFC:

When a release is contained within multiple packaging types, the
packaging type should be set to the innermost type which includes all
mediums within the release.
For example, a 2-disc set of two jewel cases within a slipcase should be
entered as “slipcase”, while a 2-disc set where both discs are in one
jewel case should be entered as “jewel case”.
