I had a feeling that it was just an old build that hadn't been changed. In that case, am I correct in assuming that the new tag for the skill will not have melee in it, but instead have just Attack and Projectile?
Correct. This actually required some re-coding of the stuff that automatically generates tags, as we hadn't originally anticipated a non-melee skill that's used with only melee weapons, but is now working.

But what about "Increased Damage with One-Handed Melee Weapons"? This will still work because it references the weapon base and not the skill, right?
Correct. An Axe is still classified as a melee weapon, even if you're biffing it at someone's head from a distance, rather than using it in melee.
Ranged attack totem. That's all.

EDIT: oh, and iron grip too.

Speaking of spectral throw, it seems that there is a "damage" animation on the monsters for as long as the weapon is touching them. Is it like a many-hits-possible skill or is it only an animation to keep track of the weapon while it's "inside monsters"?

Wait that won't work right? Just wands and bows skills for ranged totem?

Both apply to projectile attacks, this is a projectile attack. Should work. I can see this being a staple 4L secondary skill for a lot of strength based melee chars. Free artillery.

Ranged Attack Totem specifically says "Supported Attack Skills cannot be used with Melee Weapons".

Iron Grip is legit, though.
I don't think it's projectile, just melee and attack.

You only think that because you haven't read the huge yellow-bordered post from Mark explaining in detail that it is classified as projectile and attack.

That's too bad about RAT, I wonder if that will get changed. Lightning Strike and Elemental Hit are the only skills I could see people attempting to use it with while holding a melee weapon. Perhaps it's just there to clarify that? I want my spectral throw totem, dammit.

Make sure you add a new node that says "Increased Melee Damage with One-Handed Weapons".
