Interesting, Firefox does indeed do that. Weird.

Every other browser I tested (Chrome dev, which fixes the bug you mentioned;
Opera 10.x; IE8) does this the way the spec describes. Given that the behaviour
is somewhat reasonable, I think following the path of least resistance to
interop is the way to go here (i.e. go with the majority of implementations).

Note that working around this as an author is trivial - just move the
onclick="" from <body> to <html>. That already works in all the browsers I
tested (IE8, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari). This isn't the case for
onload="", onblur="", etc, which is why it makes sense to have them
special-cased on <body>.
