I agree that is a risk.   Perhaps task-family-specific data types like
<zipfileset> and <zipgroupfileset> could be placed under a separate

I noticed that several developers I work with did not know that
they could be used in the <jar> task (they are mentioned in
one teeny little paragraph, but you have to read fairly closely).
Some of the developers did not even see them in the <zip> documentation
(you have to read down to the end :-)

I put the question to the group:  is there some clever way we
could raise the visibility of task-family-specific data types?

If someone can come up with a good idea that we agree on, I would
be happy to submit some patches...
