Sorry, but that's not valid.  All Mark needs is

<element name='exporteditems'>
             <simpleType>
              <list itemType="ID"/>
             </simpleType>
</element>

as Don Mullen already pointed out.

To restrict its length to 6, the following is required:

<element name='exporteditems'>
  <simpleType>
   <restriction>
             <simpleType>
              <list itemType="ID"/>
             </simpleType>
          <length value="6"/>
   </restriction>
  </simpleType>
</element>

Note how this simply wraps the restriction around the simple list.
