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

Agreed: I've just looked at the Oxford "Madrigals and Partsongs" and this is how it is written there. The JOED Byrd music even puts the ambit after the time signature. I've added this to the tracker as http://code.google.com/p/lilypond/issues/detail?id=4396
