Reviewing the documentation here, I think this should be a valid cd_ambient_conf.xml, however my log files say differently. They report error as per below:

ERROR XMLConfigurationReader - Error while validating file 'cd_ambient_conf.xml' with schema 'schemas/cd_ambient_conf.xsd'. cvc-complex-type.2.4.a: Invalid content was found starting with element 'ExcludedPaths'. One of '{Cookies, ClaimStoreProvider}' is expected.

Here is my cd_ambient_conf.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no" ?>
<Configuration xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" Version="6.1" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="schemas/cd_ambient_conf.xsd">
    <!-- <Security>
    </Security> -->
    <!-- Cookies settings -->
    <!-- <Cookies> <Cookie Type="Tracking" Name="myTrackingCookie" Path="/"/> <Cookie Type="Session" Name="mySessionCookie" Path="/"/> </Cookies> -->
        <!-- Example cartridge definition -->
        <Cartridge File="cd_ambient_cartridge_conf.xml"/>
        <Cartridge File="cd_webservice_preview_cartridge.xml"/>
        <Cartridge File="footprint_cartridge_conf.xml"/>

From your link to the docs, you are using Tridion 2011 SP1. There was a hotfix that addressed this issue and it should be part of the Hotfix Rollup 2 release.
