Thanks for catching this. The cause was a regression I inadvertently
introduced when making a change to how the registered rel values are
collected. I just forgot a necessary step to cause the values from
documents to be compared case-insensitively to the registered values.

So the checker was looking for the “edituri” in the registry but instead
finding “EditURI”.

Anyway, I’ve fixed it now in checker sources and pushed the fix to
https://validator.w3.org/nu/. So rel=EditURI should no longer cause an
error to be reported.
