task :default do
end

extra = "Rakefile.extra"
File.open(extra, "w") { |f| f.puts "p SPEC" }
SPEC = 99

# OK in rake-0.8.7; error in rake-0.8.99 (uninitialized constant SPEC)
load extra

# OK in rake-0.8.99; error in rake-0.8.7 (load_rakefile not present)
load_rakefile extra

Is this the expected behavior?
