I just needed to sit with xml spy for a bit and now i think I have the 
solution :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<!--W3C Schema generated by XMLSpy v2006 sp2 U (>
<xs:schema xmlns:xs="" 

	<xs:simpleType name="ipaddrstr">
		<xs:restriction base="xs:string">

	<xs:complexType name="ipaddr">
		<xs:simpleContent >
			<xs:extension base="ipaddrstr">
				<xs:attribute name="type" type="xs:string" use="optional" />

<xs:element name="ip" type="ipaddr" />
