IMHO needed-characters is just a patch, is not solution.
And needed-characters is used by all of root image, not only for floppy.

But I simulated to add missing glyph for floppy.

1. create all of glyph from udeb file ('ja' doesn't mean only Japanese at this time :-) ).

foreach F (tmp/floppy_cd-drivers/tree/*.udeb tmp/floppy_net-drivers/tree/*.udeb)
dpkg -I $F templates >> needed-characters/ja

2. Build floppy_root image.

3. Compare it with non-glyph version.

file         before  after
all.utf      112012  304848
unifont.bdf  162683  241449
unifont.bgf   79076  113780

- finally unifont.bgf is used by initrd.
- This haven't i18n'ed netcfg.
- This lacks some package's templates till unifont loads.
