I originally thought about a "scope" Sequential
subclass as well.  In fact, when I got into my email
today I planned to speak up in favor of it... I don't
think we should be implementing one thing now with the
promise of something better later.  Let's just get it
right the first time.  So, that said, what do we think
of this alteration:

  <persist property="foo" />
    <propertyset />
  <your-task-here />

So that instead of declaring which properties do NOT
remain, we declare which properties DO remain.

Or, if I can't sell that, at least make the behavior
configurable via an attribute and support <persist>
(or whatever) as well as <local>.

Now how 'bout that?
