Indeed, the "language" tasks are currently not shown *at all* in the D-I process, so these boring translations are not used in D-I (they're visible in aptitude). This "submenu" suggestion will be indeed implemented at some moment in the future when we will try to solve #261929 or #79212 and their brothers... Actually, this thing popped up again in -boot 1 or 2 days ago...
