I've had a closer look at the spec right now. 1, 3 and 4 are already
in there (sort of). Nothing to document at all.

The current document obviously doesn't talk about situations where you
want to build a task and use it in the same build file. There is no
mention of taskdefs at all so I really would like to see where we
finally end up before I add anything.
