wouldn't the resource attribute be redundant in that case?

+1 on reserving the ant* protocol.

I'm leaning towards a repository of antlibs, say ANT_HOME/antlibs with
classloader isolation between different antlibs and discovery on
demand here.  I.e. don't force the antlib to live on Ant's core
classloader - and avoid scanning of the repository unless an antlib:*
URI has been used.

What about overriding a definition?  Print a warning and succeed like
<taskdef> would do now?

+1 on the proposal in general.
