Yes I was only addressing W3C schema, not intending to exclude other schema
languages but W3C schema is what we use here.

Our interest is only for lists that are either very long or are dynamic. For
short static lists inline enumeration is fine (so I suppose the example I
gave is misleading.  Here is a better example:

As noted by Renato, there is a simpler approach so no need for this.
