As property means "XML element" here, the answer must be "no, nothing
but the root level element may have the name project" IMHO.

We do have a rudimentary DTD for Ant and some people are using it
together with DTD aware editors (psgml-mode for example) to write
their build files.

There is no way to define a "context" in a DTD - an element "project"
is a "project" element and its attribute list is defined exactly once.
I'm not sure whether one can define a context-sensitive attribute list
in XSchema.
