The Ant task and its derivatives use the SingleCheckExecutor for simplicity's
sake because it gives all the behavior they need.  Adding the ability to specify
a particular Executor would not be that difficult but it doesn't seem like much
more than clutter, really.  In this particular instance, it strikes me as odd
that you want/need to execute a target without its dependencies.  If so, why do
you have the dependencies?  Ordinarily you declare dependencies and the tasks
decide whether they have any work to do, so that your build incurs as little
work as possible.  If you have two tasks and sometimes you want to execute one
based on the other you could impose that structure with helper targets.  It
sounds as though restructuring your buildfiles could be immensely helpful.
