course, "front-matter" can be interpreted as "the very beginning of a piece", but I think 
of it as entirely separate from the piece — and end-matter is definitely not "the very beginning of a 

Not trying to battle semantics — just giving a use case, and putting forward my concern 
that any changes to the Ambitus engraver shouldn’t eliminate the possibility of using it 
somewhere other than the "traditional place" (i.e., immediately to the left of 
the first measure of a vocal staff).

... the least common denominator probably being that an Ambitus indication should be put at some *distinguished* place - front matter, end matter, first system, and so on, where it may be found easily. But to bury it at some more-or-less arbitrary place within the music doesn't seem a good idea to me.

Anyway: _How_ do you place the Ambitus in, e.g., the front matter?
