It's non-conforming to have a `body` element anywhere other than as 
"the body element", so it's OK to not make sense. There's also 
precedent for similar nonsense, like:

```
<script>
 var body = document.createElement('body');
 body.onload = function() { alert(1) }; // same as window.onload
</script>
```
