I think you've misunderstood what I wanted to say. I'd prefer to
remove the path _attribute_ not the nested element. Right now you can
say <path path="some:path" /> which is the same as

  <pathelement path="some:path" />

This has been intended as a shortcut for situations where the full
CLASSPATH you need already exists in a single property. But then you
could use the classpath attribute of the corresponding task or the
path attribute of arg or ... for this as well.

I think we should reduce path to have id and refid attributes as well
as pathelement, path and fileset nested elements.
