Yes, I was planning to change that once ${} expansion happens at
runtime. I've never seen anybody using the properties set by available
in ${} constructs but you could do that (and your proposed change
would break this functionality).

Besides I want to commit a patch Glenn McAllister has submitted weeks
ago to assign arbitrary values to the property in <available> instead
of "true" - which makes the pattern described above a little bit more

There is an "unless" attribute to target - and it has been there for
quite some time. Your patch is against code that even predates Ant
1.1, not to speak of current CVS.
