Yes, I believe that both can be safely removed from testing/unstable.

task-chinese is due for an update soon, as Yu Guanghui and I discussed
briefly a week ago.  We'll just need to contact Anthony Wong and get
the updates in.  (There are a few new Chinese packages to be added
to task-chinese).  As for being uninstallable on Alpha, it may have
something to do with the fact that a few packages that task-chinese-{s,t}
depends on are i386-only.  Hmm... we'll see how we fix that... probably by
changing task-chinese's "Architecture:" field from "all" to "any"?
Hmm... more debian/control trickery.  We'll see.  :-)

Thanks for the update about the problems with these packages.  :-)
