Apart from "it has always been that way", I don't really know why it
does that.

My guess is that Ant encourages using the -d switch while Ant users
are probably not aware of the fact that it does so.  Moving the
destintaion directory to the end of the classpath doesn't have any ill
effect that I could see right now, but that doesn't mean anything 8-)
