Error in RDFa generated by validator.w3.org

I was validating a document today and noticed that the validator
generates the following invalid RDFa with the "Valid" badge:

<p about=""
     resource="http://www.w3.org/TR/rdfa-syntax"
     rel="dct:conformsTo" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/terms/">
    <a href="http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=referer"><img
        src="http://www.w3.org/Icons/valid-xhtml-rdfa-blue"
        alt="Valid XHTML + RDFa"   /></a>
  </p>

Note that the DC Terms namespace is defined as "dc", but the rel value
uses "dct".

This was reported last year, with the promise to be corrected in the
next release (http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=7025).  Do
we know how to give this a nudge?
