It's probably because when ivy automatically converts maven2's pom
files to ivy.xml's, it plays on the safe side and make the conf
dependencies as broad as possible.

You could include in the demo a local directory structured as an ivy
repo holding optimized ivy.xml's. In your resolver chain, resolve all
ivy files against this one first then against ibiblio.
