The CSS WG decided _not_ to change the spec in response to Simon
Pieters's request[1] to make BODY as special in XHTML as in HTML. (The
exceptions for HTML are there for historical reasons, they affect other
elements than BODY, too and we like them to _stay_ exceptions. Our
impression is that the XHTML WG also doesn't want them to apply to
XHTML. Also consider that other XML-based formats aren't special
either, even if if they have a BODY element.)

(For reference, this is issue 31 in the forthcoming "Disposition of

Simon, please let us know if you can't agree with this resolution.

For the CSS WG,
