[Advaita-l] Question about Avaccheda vada

In the context of avaccheda vada, how is mathakasha any different from ghatakasha as both are upadhis? We can simply say jiva is ghatakasha and ishwara is brihadghatakasha. But that would mean ishwara too has avidya. 

Thanks for panchadashi reference but Vidyaranya is using another version of reflection theory and not delimitation theory. 

Any reference from Shankara/Gaudapada or other 9th century Advaitins like Vachaspati? Thanks

 ghatakasha is jiva and mahakasha is brahman, what or where
 is Ishwara in the equation?
 You can
 have maThAkAsha, the space limited by a mansion.  This is
 an indicative, one can think of any other huge enclosure to
 fit 'Ishvara' in. 
 Swami Vidyaranya in the Panchadashi
 6th Chapter gives a detailed method where Ishwara is also
 accorded a place.  See the initial few verses.  A bit
 complicated, though.
