Guessing, since I didn't follow the discussion: nowhere.

<dependset> deletes the target files if it thinks they are outdated,
so the way dependset factors into the transformation is by removing
the target file and thus making it appear out of date WRT the source

Make it an attribute with some reasonable default (your descriptions
sounds good, but how would you define "per xslt task"? use the
stylesheet's name?).  See the <modified> selector for example.

CachingTraxLiaison - but then again, all badly chosen names in Ant are
mine (TM) ;-)
