Not at all. You just have to declare them, as usual in XML.

They are actually necessary if you want to link the task name
in the HTML to the proper doc for the task. You need a mapping
from XML URI to base URL to map to, when documenting cross-
antlib examples.

My vision is that an AntLib writer can generate its doc the same
way Ant would (will ;-), mapping the Ant URI to the online manual.
This way antlibs' documentation become cross-linked.

Basically the same idea as in <javadoc>'s <link> and <linkoffline>.
