Cited. I think this is the first time I've seen Wiktionary turn up as the top Google result for a real word. May it be the first of many... --

I've seen that a lot. I suspect it may happen much more often for FL words. It is cool ;-)

Sorry to spoil your fun, but I think the reason Wiktionary is the top Google Web Search result for “vaso vasorum” is because
vaso vasorum is a common misspelling. The correct form, going by etymology, published usage, and reference to authorities, is . vas a vasorum † ﴾ ( u): Raifʻhār ( t): Doremítzwr 20:03, 9 October 2007 (UTC) ﴿ Note also the
similarly formed and the existence of an sanctum sanctorum uncommon singular form of this word, . vas vasorum † ﴾ ( u): Raifʻhār ( t): Doremítzwr 20:13, 9 October 2007 (UTC) ﴿
Good catch. I guess this explains why so many sources hyphenate it ("vaso-vasorum"); presumably this malformation is due to interference from
vaso-. I see that has a respectable clump of attestations as well. -- vasovasorum Visviva 14:27, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
