You can have multiple directories pointing at multiple AD's, but the problem is authentication.

If you have authentication local, then you can pull your users from different AD's and CM will do authentication.

If you want authentication also from AD, you need something like a global AD catalog. I have no idea what that is, nor do I know what are the AD requirements to make that work.

I have a government client with two independently managed Active Directories. Each organizational unit needs directory and authentication services to their own AD, but wants to see the directory info for the other UC cluster. Sounds like we simply need to add the other AD info for each UC cluster's directory, right?

Entirely separate domains. They only want to see the directories (users/phone numbers) of the other's domain.

Then you need to follow the link I posted, or to use a custom directory script.

I'm not clear on this, can you be more specific? The link you provided speaks of authentication. I only need directories so users on cluster A can see the telephone numbers of users on cluster b.
