...Whut? I flew out three years ago as a Group A, with about half the UK contingent, so this is certainly not the first time the UK has been split.
For those worried about luggage allowances, check the websites for Virgin, ANA and JAL - those are the big three CLAIR seems to use (or they were three years ago). Yes, you can pay extra for another bag, but that might cause problems at the Narita end, when your large bag is sent on to your placement while you go to Tokyo.
And while there's no need to be packing just yet, you can
be doing things like finding a nice, light suitcase (if you don't already own one), buying a laptop (if you intend to bring one with you), and stocking up on clothes (for those on the larger side, or who have a preferred brand).
