Because Ant doesn't have a way to determine isDebugEnabled().
XmlLogger, for example, logs everything and ignores the command line
switches.  So the only "thing" which would know it is the listeners

Since the listener API doesn't expose the verbosity - and changing the
interface is no good idea either - I don't see how we could do it.
