Nah, Task isn't part of the framework for the purposes of adding aspects.  If 
the framework (the container) can add, remove, or replace, aspects at 
runtime, then you end up with a much more flexible setup than if the aspects 
are bolted onto Task at compile time.

After trying this kind of thing in myrmidon, it seems one of the simplest ways 
to add aspects to tasks, is to use container tasks, like <if>.

I'd love to.  When I get some time, I will.
