The onload event is present in standard HTML specifications, but, as mentioned
in Comment #1, it is only allowed for the body element.

If you believe that it should be available for other elements, this bugzilla,
and by extension, the markup validator, is not the right place to ask: the
validator validates exstablished standards, and does not discuss the why of
things. If you want to ask why onload is only available for <body> or suggest
it be added to other elements in a future version of the HTML standard, you
want to discuss in the public mailing-list www-html@w3.org
