[docs] [issue31795] Slicings documentation doesn't mention Ellipsis

Nitish report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Nitish <nitishchandrachinta at gmail.com>:

Ellipsis object documentation[1] specifies that Ellipsis is mainly used by Slicings. But Slicing's documentation[2] doesn't mention anything about Ellipsis. Consequently - it is not immediately clear from Ellipsis documentation what it's used for.
