I believe that the validator is conforming here to the behavior required by the
HTML5 spec -- or maybe by other specs that the HTML5 normatively references. I
think the error message for this case is coming from the HTML parser code that
the validator uses, not the validator code itself.

One way you can check that is, do "View source" on your test file in Firefox,
which uses the same HTML parser code as the validator. Firefox's View-source
feature will mark in red any parsing problems it finds. So if you see that it's
flagging the same problem that the validator is reporting, then you know it's
due to that HTML parser code.

And that HTML parser code attempts to conform to the HTML5 spec. So if you'd
like to see a spec change around this, please consider posting the details to
either public-html@w3.org or whatwg@whatwg.org
