This is what you could do with an include, or am I missing something
(again 8-).

No problem - really. You don't get through as confrontational at all.

I know what you mean.

Imagine you could include (forget the ugly entity syntax for a moment)
a fragmentary buildfile which contained property and taskdef tasks as
well as a target for other initial stuff (including some available and
uptodate tasks). Then make your "normal" targets depend on this
included initial target - would this fit your needs?
