According to the spec:
The body element represents the body of a document (as opposed to the
document?s metadata).

I think definition is a bit ambiguous.

We may think in giving it a more explicit meaning, and freeing it for
semantic availability (just an example):

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head> <!--<metadata>, <system>, <config> -->
        <meta></meta>
        <script></script>
        <link></link>
    </head>
    <markup> <!-- <window>, <render>, <main>, <app>, <structure> -->
        <header>
            <h1></h1>
            <p></p>
        </header>
        <body>
            <p></p>
            <p></p>
        </body>
        <footer>
            <p></p>
        </footer>
    </markup>
</html>
