This sentence seems to imply that it is even possible. Based on my reading of
http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#Type_Derivation (esp. 126.96.36.199 through 188.8.131.52)
I would have thought that it isn't. The text says that all simple types are
derivations (direct or not) of anySimpleType. Inserting a complex type in there
would effectively change that.
Not that the spec isn't already baroque enough as it is.
