You're right it doesn't work...

The only non-sibling-recursion technique I can think of now is a no-op
template along the lines of:

<xsl:template match="*[. >> $target]"/>

hmm now that I've understood it a little better, maybe 'remove', eg
select="//* remove *[. >> $target]"

Well, for that particular expression I think "except" works just fine.

It was when the right hand side referenced current() that I thought it didn't work. I think the intent of the "until" was to be able to cite a singleton on the right hand side.
