While I'm in favor of fixing such typos, the Itanium Assembly Language
Reference Manual states:

	"The assembler ignores the name operands of the
	 directive."

(page 35 of document 248801-004).

In my opinion, a warning might be in place, but a hard error for
something that the spec explicitly allows seems like a bad idea to me.
