HTML 5 conformance: table border obsolete?

Some time early this year the validator has started to give an error 
message when encountering:

   <table border="1">.

This is explicitly allowed  in HTML5 [1].

Example: one of our PR documents, RDF Semantics [2], was pubrules-happy 
early Jan, but now produces these errors.

BTW: validator.nu is happy with the document.

Is this a validator bug? Or am I missing something?

Thanks,
