I'm 99% sure that it's intended to be legal. Schema Part 2 states the
intention clearly:

4.3.5 enumeration

[Definition:]   enumeration constrains the
<http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-2/#dt-value-space> .value space. to a
specified set of values. 

There is however a minor bug in the spec; it says that when going from the
XML representation of the schema to the component representation, the
"actual value" of the enumeration/@value attribute is used, and the
definition of "actual value" suggests that the enumerated value "1.0 2" is
interpreted as an instance of xs:anySimpleType (because that's the type of
@value as defined in the schema for schemas), rather than as an instance of
the type whose facet is being defined.

Until fairly recently, unfortunately, Saxon implemented what the spec says,
not what it obviously meant to say.

Subject: Applying enumeration-facet on list type



When defining an enumeration-facet on a list, should we consider the
lexical-space or value-space of the value? 

Is the following example legal?



<root MyAtt="1.0 2.0"/> 



<?xml version="1.0" ?>

<xsd:schema xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">

            <xsd:element name="root">


                        <xsd:attribute name="MyAtt">




itemType="xsd:decimal" />


                                    <xsd:enumeration value='1.0 2'/>
