R. David Murray added the comment:

The problem with using 'nonlocal' is that it would naturally be read as 'those names referenced in a nonlocal statement', which I don't think is the case.  Maybe 'non-local', to differentiate it from the keyword?

I'm attaching a patch incorporating my understanding of the suggestions made so far.
