>isolation between the calling and thecalled project.

stefan, it is true of inherit* properties, however here are some scenarios 

1. The developers may want to call clean, startTomcat... etc and some other
targets from root to all the sub directories. However module developers are
more interested in current module only (as there would be no sub build.xml
files any way)
2. the inherit properties are set to true only and isolation is not a
concern in such scenario.

I know does complicate subant to be little context aware.. but if there are
no side effects as in the above context,  it could boost performance
specially what if many targets are called using subant way.
