RE: A complex type cannot be a restriction of a simpleType ??

If that's the case, then the XML Spy folks need to be contacted, too. While
Spy does validate the schema in "Schema View" mode, in text view mode it
gives the following error:

Schema error - undefined schema component "base" encountered - simpleContent
can not have a base that is a complexType with complexContent.

If I change ID to have a base of xsd:string, the following error is

Schema error - undefined schema component "base" encountered - you must use
a complexType instead of "xsd:string" because a simpleContent/restriction
can't be based on a simpleType.

Is the problem that this particular combination of extension and restriction
is not allowed?

The schema looks OK at a quick read-through, and if SQC likes it
that's a pretty good sign.  Sounds like you need to hit the Castor
people with a bug report.
