I agree for overriding in arbitrary namespaces, but we have to keep
supporting it for the default namespace.

We've added support for task overloading when Ant added a task with
the name <manifest> and FOP's build broke as they had a manifest task
of their own.  Without overriding, each new task in Ant could
potentially break build files.
