Ok, I will get my id reference stuff ready.
I do not think that we need a commandline arg or a property, the
only thing that is needed is a warning like DD's

Warning: Reference y has not been set at runtime, but was found during
build file parsing, attempting to resolve. Future versions of Ant may support
referencing ids defined in non-executed targets.
