They are already on https://www.debian.org/blends/.

If you want to have them in the Debian Installer, you should either
provide an "-all" package for each of them containing whatever you want
to have installed by default, or provide a patch for
debian-blends-tasks.desc. The latter would probably have the option to
do locale stuff -- see the main .desc file and the tasksel
