Well, 'execute top level tasks', yes. Not sure about 'all' :-)

I need <import> to be executed before resolving target dependency.

Ant1.5 execute top level tasks as soon as they are parsed, 
you seem to prefer to execute top level tasks after resolving 
depenencies ( by adding "" as a dependent to all targets ),
I would like them before ( by explicitely executing "" after
reading the file and before dependencies ). 

Should we ask for a vote to sort this out ?

There is an alternate solution to go back to Nicola's proposal
and add an explicit <init>, and execute only this one. But 
the problem is the same - what is allowed in <init> ? 

One thing I wouldn't like is having some tasks that are 
executed at init time ( i.e. before resolving deps ) and
some executed after, that would be messy.
