You cannot derive a simpleType from a complexType. The base type of a simple
type can only be another simple type.

I understand what you *want* ( and believe me, many other people want it
too, but we have to stop adding features and ship something :-) ) There is
no way to do this in XML Schema 1.0. I believe it is part of the current
requirements gathering exercise for a future version.
