Validation of packing constraints are a really specialized problem:
possibly you can do 1 dimension packing checks with Schematron, but 2-D or
3D packing constraints on arbitary number objects or arbitrary sizes is
not something that you would expect from a general purpose schema or
simple constraint language. Maybe a constraint language with higher-order
logic could do it...or a schema language that was more like a spreadsheet.

But things like table validation are a degenerate case of packing
checking. I think Schematron can certainly validate edge constraints (the
max number of cols may not exceed the @colspec attribute, for example) but
not where you have arbitrary tables with irregular cells, elidable cell
declarations, spans, straddles, and so on.
