This is according to a source I usually trust. It writes that adsense is yet to update its terms but you won't be penalized for mixing ads from different providers (as long as other ads "don't mimic" adsense ones).
While it wasn't directly mentioned on the blog, it was one of the changes referred to in this post [adsense.blogspot.com].
From the program policies:
Competitive Ads and Services
In order to prevent user confusion, we do not permit Google ads or search boxes to be published on websites that also contain other ads or services formatted to use the same layout and colors as the Google ads or search boxes on that site. Although you may sell ads directly on your site, it is your responsibility to ensure these ads cannot be confused with Google ads.

If you're speaking of the same thing ASA mentions, that's been discussed here before.
Are you speaking of the same thing ASA mentions or something else?
Under what circumstances would you want ADS (ADSense) and YPN on the same page?
I can see a few reasons. The biggest one would be that if you run two AdSense blocks, taking out the second (lower paying) one and replacing it with a YPN one may yield better returns.
Or if you prefer YPN to AdSense, you can still include the AdSense Link Units (which I don't believe YPN offers yet).
But, as noted, YPN doesn't allow AdSense on its pages. That's surprising given how Yahoo!'s latest quarter saw a dip in year-over-year affiliate site revenue. Ouch.
