This error is not in the single-page spec source, but instead only in the
multipage version, which is generated by a python script.

The spec source at http://svn.whatwg.org/webapps/index and
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/index have this:

<tr id=entity-LeftAngleBracket><td> <code title="">LeftAngleBracket;</code>
</td> <td> U+027E8 </td> <td> <span class=glyph title="">&lang;</span> </td>

So it seems like the &lang; is getting changed into &#9001; by the python
script that generates the multi-page version. But that script is not doing
anything special of its own with entities, so I think the cause of the bug must
either be in some python library that the script relies on.
