 Can an unplumbed NIC be added to a running exclusive-IP zone usnig the
 same method?  (I don't have a system with enough NICs to test this.)

No, because they're different objects.  ifconfig controls IP
interfaces, not NICs.

To move a NIC into a running exclusive-IP-stack zone, use dladm.  This
should do the trick:

dladm set-linkprop -t -p zone=myzone bge0

Note that -t is required.  To make a permanent change, use zonecfg.

And once you've done that you go into the non-global zone and do 
ifconfig bge0 plumb etc.
