I think you are right.
The schema validator in Saxon is attempting to do this check but gets it
wrong. I will fix it.

Subject: Constraints on whiteSpace

Could someone comment whether this is valid or not

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"
elementFormDefault="qualified" attributeFormDefault="unqualified">
  <xs:simpleType name="NameType">
    <xs:restriction base="xs:token">
      <xs:whiteSpace value="preserve"/>

My understanding (section " Constraints on whiteSpace Schema
Components" in http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-2/) is that it is not.
However, none of the tools I've tried report it. Here is the XSV command
line and the output

xsv -i -w file:///c:/tmp/WhiteSpace.xsd

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<xsv xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/05/xsv" instanceAssessed="false"
  schemaErrors="0" target="[standalone schema assessment]"
  version="XSV 2.7-1 of 2004/04/01 13:40:50">
  <schemaDocAttempt URI="file:///c:/tmp/WhiteSpace.xsd"outcome="success"
source="command line"/>
