Hit-testing on the body element

In the test case below, Blink and WebKit display a red background on the
body element when the mouse hovers over the page.

     body:hover { background-color: red; }

FF/IE/Presto do not display a red background. None of them set
pointer-events:none on the body element, so I'm guessing each
implementation special-cases the body element some other way.

Is this behaviour specified anywhere or is it just common-sense? Would
using pointer-events:none in html.css be a better way of enforcing it?
