Need help setting a JAXB bindings.xjb file

I'm having trouble figuring out to set up a bindings.xjb file for JAXB in a case where I have two separate schema files that define a simpleType with the same name and thus produce a conflict. The xjc command reports "A class/interface with the same name is already in use. Use a class customization to resolve the conflict."

I can get JAXB to work if I edit the schema files by hand, but since they are part of a large schema provided by a government agency and really out of my control, I feel that the "proper" way to handle this is through a bindings file, especially since the government schemas are subject to change periodically and I don't want to have to get into a situation where I am editing them anew with every release.

Could anyone point me in the right direction on this one?

The government schemas are complex, so I've tried to distill this down to a simple example which closely follows what happens in the real schema. Imagine that we have two schema files AppleSchema.xsd and OrangeSchema.xsd. Both include a simpleType called "varietyType" that defines valid varieties such as "Jonathan", "Granny Smith" and "Spy" for apples and "Valencia", "Cara Cara", etc. for oranges. Both are imported by a common schema file called "Fruit.xsd"

Anyway, I made up an example of what AppleSchema.xsd might look like (apologies in advance on my weak use of the language... XML is not one of my great enthusiasms):

I tried setting up a bindings.xjb file as shown below to try to map the varietyType name to be appleVarietyType

When I try running something like xjc -b bindings.xjb AppleSchema.xsd I get the following error message:

[ERROR] compiler was unable to honor this property customization. It is attached to a wrong place, or its inconsistent with other bindings.
line 6 of file:/C:/Users/gwlucas/Documents/bindings.xjb

[ERROR] (the above customization is attached to the following location in the schema)
line 3 of file:/C:/Users/gwlucas/Documents/AppleSchema.xsd
