Well to tune the rendering one has to sort out the logic first ;-)

You first has to decide "do I want title_variant_a always, or only
if the main language of the document is english, or only if an
option is set or only if ...". 
What should happen if the language of the document is in japanese,
the bib-entry is a french book and there is a translated_chinese
variant of the title?

In the end the biblatex code is similar. It has some more options to
access and handle variants.

In this special case it seemed the logical thing to do. "Müller
(Müller) and 柳田聖山 (Yanagida, Seizan) ..." or "Müller and 柳田聖山
(Müller and Yanagida, Seizan) ..." would look odd.
