[whatwg] Giving the <body> tag a new meaning.

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>
    <head> <!--<metadata>, <system>, <config> -->
    <markup> <!-- <window>, <render>, <main>, <app>, <structure> -->
