Sure, you could use a pattern for this. But that's not a great solution if
everywhere where the author uses @required they'd also have to have @pattern.

The question to me is how common is it to have a required field where
white-space only is a ok value? It seems to me that this would be a very rare
edge case.

If it is in fact a very rare edge case, then wouldn't it be better so solve it
using the .setCustomValidity method?
