It is a built-in rule (on/off). To do that, I would need to recode the rule
This is possible, however we'll lose the benefit of autofix as this is one
violation that the tool can safely fix by modifying the code. (or maybe I
can modify the code too via the API, but from the top of my head right now I
can't see how).

What I can do is to disable temporarily the rule, time for me to code the
right rule and see if I can actually code the autofix.
There are about 474 'final static' in Ant code right now, so I would better
prefer an autofix/commit :-)

I have reported the error. Thanks for pointing out the incoherence.
