The British Blu-ray release of The Perfume of the Lady in Black has been contributed by someone under its Italian title and its alternative Italian sleeve. This is not the way the title is being sold, it's a UK release and should have been submitted under its UK cover and its English title. I've been trying to edit title and cover to what is correct, but it is getting declined.

The Slip Cover is an exclusive only sold through 88 Films' webstore in advance of the wide retail release, and they do use the same UPC on the Slip's back cover...so it is currently valid as far as the rules go.

Vinegar Syndrome & Severin Films store exclusive Slip Cover releases often do the same thing.

Did you mention in your contribution notes that the existing profile is for the wrong locality?

It's not entered under the wrong locality. It is a UK Blu-ray release with the original "Italian" film title on its Slip Cover.

It can be viewed in the database as UPC # 5-060103-797646 (United Kingdom Locality)

The additional reason the contribution is getting declined is that they are adding a smaller front "stock" image showing the case, and leaving the larger back Slip Cover scan in the profile.

It strikes me as counter intuitive (and somewhat pretentious)  to list the film under the Italian title of a slip cover which you have to purchase separately, especially for an English release of a film which is primarily known in English speaking countries under its English language title. I didn't purchase the slip and I have the Blu-ray under it's English title and artwork, so it doesn't match.

Maybe so, but your contribution should be declined since you are just adding a smaller front "stock image" showing the plastic case, and then leaving the larger current back Slip Cover image in your contribution.

I'm not saying I agree with it, but the current Slip Cover and Title are in line with the rules.

If everything Kattonia says is true, then the non-slipcover release should be contributed using the alternate version rules.
No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever.
There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom.
Against this power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand.
The Centauri learned this lesson once.
We will teach it to them again.
Though it take a thousand years, we will be free.

I see, my bad. If it was (originally) sold in the UK with an Italian title and (slip)cover, then that is indeed a valid entry for the UK locality.

And if it has been re-released with a British title and cover, an alternate version profile is the way to go.

That's what I just did for another 88 Films release, Cold Blooded Beast. Apparently all titles in their Italian Connection series have been released this way.
