Where I disagree is that you assume the imported build writer is the
same as the importer build writer (the user or client in other words).
As a client, I shouldn't have to care whether the project is named or
not, and be able to manipulate and reference the build I import on my
terms, not his terms.

This is why it's still so difficult to write truly generic build
files, despite <import>. Not enough compartimentalization, and mixing
of concerns. --DD
