They would not have to rename files to make things work... all the
properties got embedded into build.xml, so therefore no external files are
needed with the default config.

To customize is when you'd copy build.properties.sample, or hand create your
own tweaking the properties you wanted to override.

I prefer this because it keeps all defauilt build info inside build.xml
rather than there being two files necessary.
