From the spec:
--------------------------
Schema Representation Constraint: Multiple enumerations 

If multiple enumeration element information items appear as  [children] of a
simpleType the {value} of the enumeration component should be the set of all
such  [value]s. 
--------------------------

This sounds like the enumerated value space for the derived type is the
union of both parent and child's enumeration facets; that can't be right, as
it would allow the derived type (a restriction) to have a larger value space
than the base.

Should this read "the [intersection] of all such [values]s"?
