Both URIs seem to be correct, but indeed you're right, the  
specification recommends the latter, not the former. And obviously, a  
warning recommending the former over the latter is a bug.

I filed:
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=6573
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=6574
and will look into implementing today or early next week.

Thanks!
