So please, please, please mention this in the documentation.

Almost every newcommer will stumble over this as I did. I have no
problem with keeping property and taskdef tasks the way they behave
right now - after your patch, because it feels better to have them
outside of targets.

I would volunteer to change docs/index.html but english is not my
native language so I hesitate to write more than javadoc comments.
