No.

Either attributes are seen as properties by the contained
tasks or there is a textual substitution by the macrodefinition.
There is a differnce in behaviour.

Allowing the attributes be seen as normal properties by
the contained tasks is most likely a good thing.

Another solution would be to get <macrodef> to use the local property
mechanism do the other parts of the implementation in 1.7 (or 1.6.1).
So the <local/> task and the mods to target and  unknownelement to support
<local/> could be left to 1.7.
