Why not just specify a schema-mode export and list all 80+ schemas in a parameter file?

I've already exported 2 schemas from a db ( using datapump, and I don't want to export them again; I do however, want to export the other 80+. I can't figure out how to do this properly. I attempted a FULL=Y while excluding as such:

/u01/app/oracle: expdp \"/ as sysdba\" directory=DPUMP dumpfile=msgprod2_full.dmp full=y

Connected to: Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition Release - 64bit Production
With the Partitioning, OLAP and Data Mining options ORA-39001: invalid argument value
ORA-39038: Object path "SCHEMAS" is not supported for FULL jobs.

Any thoughts on how to successfully do this? I think a possible solution would be to just do a full export, then exclude on the import side. I don't want to do this however due to the size of the 2 schemas I've already got(~124G). I've read the manual (b14215.pdf) and I cannot find any references on how to exclude multiple schemas.
