Fine by me. That's what we do in all our builds. We never had two
targets to run all tests or just one like in Ant, we just configure the
one to run all or less tests. Makes sense when developing a particular
piece of code.

Here are our default properties. --DD

PS: testtype and testconfig are for a custom selector that allows
    further categorization of tests.

    <!-- Select which tests to run. Defaults to all UNIT tests -->
    <property name="testcases" value="**/test/*Test.class" />
    <property name="testcases.excludes" value="" />
    <property name="testtype" value="UNIT" />
    <property name="testconfig" value="" />
