Well, I take <body/> does what it does if it is in the same namespace
with stanzas, and it does not much matter which kind of stanza it is
(client, server, whatever).

Technically, it is the namespace that gives the meaning, but - if you
look at the xml document/stream - it is the body that inherited the
namespace and does not have the xmlns= attribute (do I sound like XML
heretic to you?).
