Apart from the idea to use the not-exactly-automatic approach you
describe (use a typedef instead of a namespace alone) another option
would be a level of indirection.  Something Xavier suggested last

xmlns="antlib:ivy://org.apache.antlibs/antunit#integration" could
trigger a lookup of an ivy.xml file and we'll use the integration
configuration of the artifact antunit in the org.apache.antlibs
organization (making up names here).
