[whatwg] "end body tag" parsing clarification

I've been looking at the parsing chapter of the HTML5 specification, and 
I've found something which I don't think makes sense. The last two 
sentences in the 'An end tag whose tag name is "body"' section in the 
"in body" insertion mode says:

   Switch the insertion mode to "after body". Otherwise, ignore the token.

The "Otherwise" does not really make sense in this context, does it? 
Should that last sentence just be erased?
