That comes close, but note you'll also need to bind xs to the correct
namespace _in the schema_.  So your example might be a bit better
expressed as

<xs:simpleType name="xxx">
  <xs:restriction base="QName">
      <xs:enumeration value="xs:string"/>
      <xs:enumeration value="xs:double"/>
      ....
  </xs:restriction>
</xs:simpleType>
