Define "XHTML"?  AShould they apply to an <xhtml:body> in any document? 
  e.g., <xhtml:body> in an <svg:foreignObject>?  Or just to some 
<xhtml:body>s?

For that matter, what do you want to happen if an XHTML document has two 
<xhtml:body>s?

Extending this quirk from HTML to "XHTML" is a _lot_ more work than just 
changing the wording of that one sentence in the spec.
