I am not sure I understand you. task-cyrillic is not limited to concrete
languages.  It provides Cyrillic environment as good as the other Debian
packages can make it.

It will install documentation to make easier to use Cyrillic and the
language of this documentation does not big matter.  The Belarusian and
Ukrainian people can read Russian.  The Macedonian people can read
Bulgarian and Serbian.  I am Bulgarian, but I can read Serbian and
Russian. Etc.

Good.  Please don't forget about cp1251.acm.gz.  And in case that Yann
doesn't want to include all fonts from console-cyrillic, then let he at
least replaces the brocken fonts Cyr_a8x16, Cyr_a8x14, Cyr_a8x8,
alt-8x16, alt-8x14, alt-8x8, altb-8x16, altc-8x16 with their newer
versions from the package console-cyrillic.
