Re: [xml-dev] Reusing Locally Defined Element in the Same parent Tagusing "ref" ?

Having this kind of feature, usually requires shadowing a declaration higher with a declaration with the same name below. I also feel, that designing an XSD document according to this feature doesn't bring more benefits than costs.

For the Snippet below :

<xs:complexType name="Team">
        <xs:element name="Name" type="xs:string"/>
        <xs:element name="Size">
                <xs:restriction base="xs:integer">
                    <xs:totalDigits value="1"/>
        <xs:element name="teamLeads">
                    <xs:element ref="Size"/>

The element "Size" has local scope , Why Can't it be reused locally?
Usually in Programming Languages , a local element is accessible in
its complete Local Scope.Why isn't it implemented the same way
here?(i.e Why is "Size" not referenceable inside the whole "Team" Tag
