Fixed and pushed to http://validator.w3.org/nu/ 

But FWIW, the entry for "publisher" in the wiki does not meet the current
requirements in the HTML spec. The requirements are the there must be a link to
an actual specification that defines what "publisher" means. But the link for
"publisher" is to
http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1708844 That's
not a spec, it's just a simple how-to.

All that said, I'm not super keen on the requirements in the spec. The
real-world requirement should be that if some major service -- Google Plus, in
the specific case of "publisher" -- has processing support for some particular
rel value, then the makes it a de facto standard and we are wasting users' time
to report it as an error. That's the rule I plan to follow from now on when
considering what rel values the validator should treat as valid.
