You are apparently using the experimental HTML5 mode of the validator. 
That mode is really a linter, not a rigorous validator. It does not 
always match the most recent HTML5 draft, though I guess it tries to.

In this case, the construct is judged as "invalid" because it violates 
HTML5 rules, which allow only a limited set of http-equiv values. Any 
complaints on this should be directed to people who develop HTML5.
