Ohh - I am very sorry - we have made parallel duplicate work here: Just
now I finalized adding the CJK fonts to main fonts-noto package. :-/

I chose to only package a single flavor of the CJK fonts for now - the
most compact and complete flavor. I envision only a potential need for
one other flavor - the biggest one not needing "Localized forms" (locl)
support. I've postponed including that until someone express an actual
need for it.
Now (pending ftpmaster approval) fonts-noto is a metapackage with these
new packages added (packaged and unpacked sizes in paranthesis):
> * Noto CJK has different version string than other Noto fonts.
That is a common issue with bundled code: Already the fonts have
* Noto Kufi Arabic 1.02
* Noto Naskh Arabic 1.04
* Noto Naskh Arabic UI 1.04
* Noto Sans 1.05
* Noto Sans Armenian 2.02
For the Debian packaging we currently use date-based versioning instead
of favoring any of upstream multiple version numbers in their bundling.

I will take a look at your packaging anyway - maybe you had some good
ideas in your packaging that can be adopted.
Sorry for the bad timing :-(
