Just a clarification on these (not for me):

Do these three parts of the schema work together?  In particular can the role, remark, and
accept elements legally be in a substitutionGroup with the contextElement as its head
(even though their types are not derived from contextType)?

<xsd:complexType name="contextType">
  <xsd:choice minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded">
    <xsd:element ref="context" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
    <xsd:element ref="contextElement" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
  </xsd:choice>
  <xsd:attributeGroup ref="IDGroup"/>
</xsd:complexType>

<xsd:element name="context" type="contextType"/>

<xsd:element name="contextElement" type="contextType"/>

<xsd:element name="role" substitutionGroup="contextElement">
  <xsd:complexType>
    <xsd:simpleContent>
      <xsd:extension base="xsd:string">
        <xsd:attribute name="idscheme" use="optional">
          <xsd:simpleType>
            <xsd:restriction base="xsd:NMTOKEN">
              <xsd:enumeration value="MARC"/>
              <xsd:enumeration value="ONIX"/>
              <xsd:enumeration value="MPEG7"/>
            </xsd:restriction>
          </xsd:simpleType>
        </xsd:attribute>
      </xsd:extension>
    </xsd:simpleContent>
  </xsd:complexType>
</xsd:element>

<xsd:element name="remark" type="xsd:string" substitutionGroup="contextElement"/>

<xsd:element name="accept" substitutionGroup="contextElement"/>

Thanks in advance.
