Not necessarily, you can aso explicitly list the properties you want
to have available in all projects.  <propertyset> and <macrodef> may
help, i.e. define your own version of the <ant> task.

Why not?

<propertyfile> creates "plain" properties just like <property> does,
-propertyfile does the same as multiple -Dmustrum=ridcully attributes,
i.e. it creates what Ant calls user properties which are special in
many ways (they are even more immutable, so to say).
