So, though I do not need it anymore because I have the problem with 
multiple exclusions, the following should *not* have a particle ambiguity:

   <xs:complexType name="any-non-UBL">
     <xs:choice minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded">
       <xs:any namespace="##other" processContents="skip" 
minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
       <xs:any namespace="##local" processContents="skip" 
minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded"/>

And Xerces interprets this correctly.

However, for UBL I have to use just:

   <xs:complexType name="extension">
       <xs:any namespace="##other" processContents="skip"
               minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded"/>

and make it a layered business rule that UBL-namespaced constructs 
(of the four namespaces) are not allowed as immediate children of the 
UBL extension point based on your earlier comment:

Third subsection, 5th bullet ... thanks, Mike.  Now I can take this 
to the committee.
