FYI, The Schema WG recently resolved to issue a clarification with erratum
saying that a base type can be anySimpleType only for the XML Schema
datatypes, making the sForS valid, but other attempts to derive from
anySimpleType invalid.

Exactly. So either the sForS is invalid (which wouldn't matter if it
wasn't a normative reference) or there needs to be acknowledgement in
the W3C XML Schema recommendation that the sForS should be special cased
by validating processors. Either way, the issue is not clear cut.
