Well, I think it's unfortunate that this behaviour was removed because that was one of the
reasons I "sold" Ivy to my team.
What about making it optional if you are concerned by performance?

Also, being forced to edit the ivy.xml to add sources and javadocs is not very user friendly
especially when you are using a maven proxy like Nexus or Artifactory. In this situation,
most of the users will rely on the retrieved pom and may not want to create an ivy.xml just
for getting javadocs and sources added to their Eclipse build path.
