Which is the way I had them all defined. Actually I should have mentioned 
that the .Net code generation tool is only having troubles with this one 
instance as well. Here is the combination of things that are being 
complained about:

    <xsd:element name="RefNameCd">
             <xsd:extension base="RefName">
                <xsd:attribute name="PreviousRefs" type="IDREFS"

    <xsd:complexType name="RefName">
          <xsd:restriction base="OpenEnum"/>

    <xsd:complexType name="OpenEnum">
          <xsd:extension base="OpenEnum_NoID">
             <xsd:attribute name="id" type="ID"/>
             <xsd:attribute name="CodeListRef" type="IDREF"/>
    <xsd:simpleType name="OpenEnum_NoID">
       <xsd:restriction base="NC_NoID">
          <xsd:maxLength value="80"/>

    <xsd:simpleType name="NC_NoID">
       <xsd:restriction base="xsd:token">
          <xsd:minLength value="1"/>
          <xsd:pattern value="[\p{IsBasicLatin}]*"/>

FYI, we defined our own ID and IDREFS types, but they just point to the 
standard xsd:id and xsd:idrefs.
