You still seem to be confused.

Why would one chose to support two build systems - when ANT, is to all
intents and purposes a subset of Maven's functionality; minus dependency
management and a standardized configuration?

Especially if you are generating artifacts in Maven, why would you then
use a seperate build system to access them? What do you gain?

Have you used Ant and Maven before?
