There has been a short period of time back in April where they even
were not allowed inside targets (i.e. they stopped being tasks).

Whether <property> is a task or not is more of a philosophical
question. Technically it is, but the concept behind it is somewhat
different. <property> and <taskdef> can live outside of targets and at
least in Ant 1.1 behaved a lot more intuitive if they did.
