XML Schema doesn't know anything about OWL, so if you want a set of values 
to be treated as an enumeration for the purposes of XML Schema validation, 
you will have to create such an enumeration in the XML Schema language.

Yes, this duplicates effort, but XML Schema and OWL are not two parts of 
some integrated system, they live in largely separate universes.
