Subject inline property expansion not working as advertised

>From the Property task docs (http://ant.apache.org/manual/CoreTasks/property.html) 

================================
In-file property expansion is very cool. Learn to use it. 
 Example: 

build.compiler=jikes
deploy.server=lucky
deploy.port=8080
deploy.url=http://${deploy.server}:${deploy.port}/
================================

So I created a properties file with the above 
and the following build.xml file:

==================================
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<project name="inline props test" default="test">
        <target name="test">
            <echo>deploy.url is ${deploy.url}</echo>
        </target>
</project>
==================================

The I ran it as follows:

$ ant -propertyfile test.properties

Here is the output:

==================================
Buildfile: build.xml

test:
     [echo] deploy.url is http://${deploy.server}:${deploy.port}/

BUILD SUCCESSFUL
Total time: 0 seconds
================================== 
I'm using ant 7.0.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
- mps
