The only "solution" I've ever come up with is to create a meta rule 
group to account for the Subject hit:

body __FOO /foo/
header __SUBJ_FOO  Subject =~ /foo/
meta FOO  __FOO && !__SUBJ_FOO

I have to admit it's annoyed me on occasion that I can't create a single 
simple rule that ONLY matches on the message body, but TBH it's never 
been important enough in context for me to even commit the above horror.
