fallback, looping and property-overide are features that can be implemented 
as extra tasks. However I don't think they will ever make it into core. I 
would just extend the tasks for your local installation. Something like 
<xant ... />, <xproperty ... />

For logic in if/unless elements for targets - this has been rejected a few 
times because it would invariably lead to people wanting extra logic 
operators such as !=, <, >, <=, >=, ~, ||, && ... So instead we have a

condition task that will support some/all of these features eventually.

*DEFAULT* has also been rejected in the past much for same reasons as above 
features (we don't want ant to become a scripting language) so prolly wont 
make it into core either.



 These aren't the droids you're 
 looking for. Move along.
