Yes - and it seems to work just fine in all parsers except MSXML, which
doesn't recognize xs:anySimpleType as a defined type. 

I'm not sure where/how to report it as a bug. It has forced us into some
much-less-than-elegant representations.

Perfectly OK.  Clarification forthcoming on this and related issues
from the WG, see the Issues list [1], issue R-54.
