ISTR that once .ant.properties was a special file whose contents got
the same special treatment like properties specified on the command
line. When and why has this been dropped?

Another solution for your problem could be to set JAVACMD to 
"java -Dbuild.complier=whatever" to override the value specified in
the buildfile.

No, Project doesn't. It just ensures you don't override user
properties.
