currently, ambitus are placed at the very beginning of the first system, before clef and key signature. However, its meaning depends on both: without a clef, the pitches are unspecified, and it’s confusing that accidentals are set based on a key which has not yet been ‘announced’ (See also <https://code.google.com/p/lilypond/issues/detail?id=762>; there used to be a workaround with \set Staff.keySignature = #'() which doesn’t work anymore). I suggest to place the ambitus between key and time signatures, as seen in the attachment. The values in the space-alists are more or less wild guesses, as I don’t have much experience with this kind of settings. Do we really need an entry for ambitus in break-align-orders except for beginning of line?

Yours, Simon
