That might prove inconvenient when the user tried to reinstall task-kde.

However, a method of removing tasks that actually removed the packages
pulled in by the tasks would be useful.  How about a task-xxx-uninstaller
executable that would be pulled in by task-xxx and, when executed, would
remove task-xxx and everything it had pulled in?  It would, of course, have
to dodge around packages depended on by things outside task-xxx, and it
would be helpful if 'dpkg -r task-xxx' could tell the user about
