Wordpress Gallery does not Validate in HTML5

Currently using the wordpress gallery on a site and realized that it does not validate with HTML5, the two errors I always seem to get are:

Bad value lightbox[gallery-1] for attribute rel on element a: The string lightbox[gallery-1] is not a registered keyword or absolute URL.


Element dl is missing a required instance of child element dd.

with two simple fixes to the core I think these can be fixed

Core does not add rel attribute values anywhere, and definitely not for a lightbox. This sounds like a plugin or theme filtering your gallery output. If you can reproduce with a default theme (e.g. Twenty Thirteen) and no plugins, please feel free to reopen. Otherwise, you'll want to try the forums.
