   +1 : I am not sure if there is need, but I dont see any reason of
hiding that information
        as it currently available via project instance.

   +1 : Also, we dont have to hide anything. The value should be a list
of targets 
        as specified while invocation without any dependency-resolution.

These properties should be set while parsing/project-initialization, so
which dont use the Launcher, have these properties too.
