like automatic subscription to IBM web site and download of VAJ, mmm ? :o)

Seriously, this is MI3 because of various licensing issues, installation
procedures, unarchiving, optional stuff and so on, moreover that would need
a serious revisiting on versioning issues (tagging) even inside Jakarta.

Though that would not mean it would not be nice to have this...should it be
for Maven.
An XML file available via http so that an automated program could check
automatically for a new version of a specific project would be nice but is
IMHO outside the scope of Ant...it is very close but it's not its scope.
