does that include the optional tasks?

If you reserve the ant* URI space, does that mean it will be
impossible to add third party tasks to the default namespace or does
"and the default namespace for definitions" mean that all <antlib>s
without an URI will end up in the default namespace?

searching in the core classloader?  Or do you envision a special (and
separate) plugin store from which to load antlibs on demand?
