In the table which is in the link
http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#cos-particle-restrict it is given that the

Choice(derived) and elt(base) is forbidden.

Can you please tell me the meaning of this??

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Bharath,

It looks valid to me because the head from the base is treated as a choice
of head, m1 and m2, see


2.1 Any top-level element declaration particle (in R or B) which is the
{substitution group affiliation} of one or more other element declarations
and whose .substitution group. contains at least one element declaration
other than itself is treated as if it were a choice group whose {min occurs}
and {max occurs} are those of the particle, and whose {particles} consists
of one particle with {min occurs} and {max occurs} of 1 for each of the
declarations in its .substitution group..

Best Regards,
