You have to use exactly what you's put in the type="...". If what
you're trying doesn't work there (i.e., the schema validates it as
unresolved), it won't work in the ecore:reference either.

It needs to use a schema reference that would resolve if it were used as
an actual type in the schema. So you need an import and it needs to be
a QName that would resolve properly, so be sure you have an xmlns
declaration for that imported schema's namespace and be sure to use it
as part of you QName reference.

It needs to be a schema reference...
