Historically the tasks are doing so for a different reason.  In Ant 
< 1.6 task instances could get reused.  Say you have target A
depending on B and somebody runs "ant A B", then B will get executed
twice and reuse the instances created in the first execution on the
second run.

AFAIU task instances are no longer supposed to get reused that way in
1.6 and thus the guarding code should be obsolute now.
