 Okay, Here is the list pacakged but not yet in Debian
  * IPAfont (need to check translated license text)
  * umefont (need to check its license)
  * togoshi-font (once rejected from ftpmaster)

 You can download those fonts package from my repository.
 please check http://www.mithril-linux.org/~henrich/debian/package/

 and I've packaged font that listed on your page
 - dejima-fonts as ttf-dejima-mincho
 - mplus font is a part of ttf-vlgothic

 I think some of fonts you've listed will be added to Debian.
 So I'll investigate it. Thanks.
