How often will the xfonts-* package change without the ttf-*
package changing as well? Probably never, at least not the
stable packages.

The cost of having some bytes more in the Packages.gz that
_every_ user has to download (even ppl who don't know japanese)
and greater resource usage of apt is much greater than the
advantage of not having to download 3.6M once every total
eclipse (only for ppl using these packages).
