I'm leaving this issue for someone else to try first to see what might
be going wrong.  Perhaps try:

# apt-get -o APT::Install-Recommends=true task-desktop
# apt-get -o APT::Install-Recommends=true task-xfce-desktop
in sid on linux vs. kfreebsd, to see which packages it would try to install.

Try some of the APT debug flags:
-o Debug::pkgDepCache::AutoInstall=yes
-o Debug::pkgProblemResolver=yes

Perhaps look up those tasks on http://packages.debian.org and check
installability of task-xfce-desktop in particular, maybe using the
edos-distcheck tool or reviewing https://qa.debian.org/dose/

I'll probably check on this bug before d-i Beta 3 in case it hasn't been
figured out by then.
