See my answer above: Ubus == openWRT and friends. If the infrastructure
in openWRT can talk to multiple dnsmasq instances at different ubus
names, or it's a sensible ambition for it to do so in the future, then
it's good to support it.

If Harmut's config is unique, and works without openWRT talking to both
dnsmasq instances, then the solution may be just to turn off ubus on one
of the dnsmasq instances.
