Haven't heard the opinion of others yet - in my projects the concept
of "owner of a target" doesn't make too much sense YMMV - and I can do
all extra stuff I need in the description attribute common to almost
every tag you find in Ant.

I've yet to hear the opinion of others on your proposal (ignore
unknown attributes but warn), I wouldn't veto the change though.
