    I use WordPress 3.6-beta3-24407.
    Comments output in HTML5 format use <cite class="fn"> for the comment author name markup, but W3C HTML5 says:

    The cite element represents the title of a work

    A person's name is not the title of a work - even if people call that person a piece of work - and the element must therefore not be used to mark up people's names.

    cite is wrong use for the author name markup?

    Please note that the HTML5 spec is still in draft format. In fact the document that you referenced is only a candidate recommendation.
