John,

History mainly.

InAnt1 the attribute setters are called at parse time and so, property
resolution (variable is a misnomer) must occur at that time. You don't want
to place the burden of the resolution on the tasks themselves. In Ant2, I
think we all agree that at parse time, a model of the build file will be
constructed with unresolved properties. These will be resolved just prior
to task execution.

Conor
