pick any card from the deck, except the joker.it is hard to see how this sentence can be paraphrased as a universal. the best that i can come up with is:
for every x, x a card, x is such that i give you the option of picking it, except for x = the joker.this interpretation seems forced. it interprets the imperative as giving options rather than giving an order, and moreover it involves a quantifier (any, no less) taking wide scope over the imperative force, which is generally seen as a no-no.
the tentative conclusion: exceptives appear to be licenseable by any any, regardless of its universality.
