Although I do not a problem with discussing scoping in parallel, I see no need to mix
this two issues. <property> is not the only thing that can be declared
outside targets today. As ANT gets wider use, others will appear.

The success and flexibility of any artificial language (and ANT is a language) depends on
orthogonality of the concepts it has, the least special cases the best. We need to apply
well knows language design principles to ANT.
