Is this something that's really needed for web compatibility though?
Creating a DOM with multiple <body>s is hard since the parser will
never output such a DOM. Instead you have to manually set up such a
DOM using DOM methods, something that I'd expect extremely few pages
to do.

I don't have a strong opinion either way on this, I think we should go
with whatever's simplest to implement, but I don't know what that is.
