You are right, the issue here is most probably backward compatibility.
backward compatibility translates to 
"every bad choice ever taken will hunt you forever" :-(

On a more cheerfully note, take a look at: <presetdef/> (in 1.6)
With this task you can define your own defaults for whichever
task you want to use and even use the same name as the original

This may be the solution to the battle of the defaults.
