the 'type' attribute is a reference to a simple or complex type declaration whereas the 'ref' attribute references a global element declaration

Could someone here please explain me the difference between these two
ways of defining elements,
<xsd:element name="aggregateElement" type="base:baseType"/>
The only difference that I could understand is the one specified in this
article , which says that during an import,
elements created with ref retains the Namespace of the schema from which
it is imported.
That seams to be an obvious difference. I am not clear on when to use
*type=* style and when to use *ref=* style.
Thanks in advance for any help,
