I understand why you do things like that - I actually argued for making ant 
effectively do something like

<property file="${ant.home}/site.properties"/>

to load per-site defaults (but still allow them to be overidden by users). 
Unfortunately this was -1'ed at the time though it may be possible to change 
this in next ant revision - hopefully ;)
