I think a bug should be filed and fixed. 
Or have you (Hideki) already uploaded ?

You are correct.  I'm a bit ambivalent on that, since we've seen a

free fonts are a very nascent thing in Japanese), and I think a
standard tasksel installation of Debian should already satisfy the
dependency with a good enough font of the year.
