For most languages tasksel will automatically install relevant 
dictionaries. It currently does not do so for English _because_ those 
packages are priority standard (and have been for a long time).
IMO we should be consistent between languages in that respect, and 
especially for English.

It is now too late in the release cycle to change task definitions 
to "compensate" for the priority change and test such changes, and the 
change could also have consequences for debian-cd.

Therefore, as member of the Debian Installer team, I have requested for 
these changes to be postponed until after the release.
