Likewise though, couldn't you argue that if the project hasn't been
touched in years, then the chance of the project upgrading it's Ant
distribution is also slim?

As Gump shows us there a tons of open source projects in wide-spread
use which haven't been touched in years (still don't stand the
slightest chance to compile on Java5, for example).  Removing
deprecated stuff from Ant means that a project that built fine on Ant
1.6.5 suddenly stops building in 1.7.
