I agree, too.
Because the current task-japanese becomes some quite larger,
splitting into subgroups makes more convenient and
brings fine-grained package-installing.
It seems that suggesting packages you wrote are very
pragmatic and useful.

It may require.

jless, lv, kcc, nkf are very useful, so they're installed
in same time, IMHO.
I propose adding ja-trans to this package, because it
provides Japanese message catalogs that are shortage
in some original packages.
kon2 depends on konfont, so it should be included.
jfbterm depends on xfonts-base, recommends to xfonts-cjk, xfonts-75dpi.
So I think it's more better that the task-janapese-console
is made and it includes kon2/jfbterm related packages.

How do you think adding xfonts-kaname, xfonts-marumoji ?

task-japanese-misc requires including task-japanese-essentials.
It's nice that ja-trans moves into task-japanese-essentials, IMHO.
dedit should be moved into task-japanese-x, because it needs X.

I propose newly (is it meaningful?):
