I dont see any point investing any effort in making ant work under 
crimson. Not any more. We redist with Xerces, we can deny support for 
older things. Indeed, we could check and complain about crimson early 
on, perhaps.

The sole reason for crimson support is someone embedding ant in their 
app, and not using xerces there. I leave it to them to identify the 
problems and work around it.
