I doubt this is going to happen in the in tasksel. For one thing, its 
maintainer has quite strong feelings against it.

For another thing, a two-level selection is not that easy to implement 
using the debconf protocol; and you _have_ to use the debconf protocol 
for integration with the installer.
The only way to implement something two-level currently is the way it was 
done for the list of all countries in D-I. Note that the presentation for 
that was changed to a collapsible list in the graphical frontend.

However, you _can_ use a custom version of tasksel on your CDD with a 
custom set of tasks as I did for Dzongkha Linux. How that is done is 
explained here:

Note that support for scanning and swapping multiple CDs during the 
installation _is_ a D-I goal for Lenny.
