I have the following W3C XML schema:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"

                 </xs:choice>
             </xs:restriction>
         </xs:complexContent>
     </xs:complexType>
     <xs:complexType name="baseType">
         <xs:choice>
             <xs:element ref="a" maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
             <xs:element ref="b"/>
         </xs:choice>
     </xs:complexType>
     <xs:complexType name="restrictedType">
         <xs:complexContent>
             <xs:restriction base="baseType">
                 <xs:choice>
                     <xs:element ref="a" maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
                 </xs:choice>
             </xs:restriction>
         </xs:complexContent>
     </xs:complexType>
</xs:schema>

The a-Group is a choice of three elements.  The groupBaseType is a choice of either one to unbounded many instances of a-Group, or of the element b.  I want to define another complex type as a restriction of the groupBaseType.  It should not allow b.

In Oxygen 7 I receive the following two error messages.

SystemID: /Applications/oxygen/Untitled1.xsd
Location: 21:48
Description: E rcase-RecurseLax.1: Group's occurrence range, (1,unbounded), is not a valid restriction of base group's occurrence range, (1,1).
URL: http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#rcase-RecurseLax

SystemID: /Applications/oxygen/Untitled1.xsd
Location: 21:48
Description: E derivation-ok-restriction.5.4.2: Error for type 'groupRestrictedType'.  The particle of the type is not a valid restriction of the particle of the base.
URL: http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#derivation-ok-restriction

Evidently, based on the second example using baseType and restrictedType, the error messages pertain to the fact that I am using a group, but I don't understand what is wrong.  Can anybody shed light on the error?
