 According to the working draft for HTML5 you are correct about
 [http://dev.w3.org/html5/markup/cite.html cite].  However, that's for
 HTML5 and the WordPress admin doctype is XHTML 1.0 Transitional.

 > Although previous versions of HTML implied that the cite element can be
 used to mark up the name of a person, that usage is no longer considered

 It seems to me that we're fine until we switch wp-admin to HTML5.  I could
 see possibly fixing the one occurrence of this in twentyeleven, but even
 then it doesn't seem like this is a bug.
