I would expect this to happen, as the sub project is usually a part of the master project. Or you just want to have a different default task, depending on the file that was invoked? If so, what comes to mine mind is to use some kind of flag used to conditional add the sub tasks to the default task. 

Or maybe there is a way to extract the namespace, so that sub projects would add there dependencies only to the default task, if they are in the global namespace.

Yes, something like this. I wouldn't have added the subprojects in a task, but simply unconditional, while loading the rakefile.
