Considering that the spell is Touch range anyway, the whole "working-without-a-body" function is pretty messed up as-is.
Agreed. Still, in the description (in the cleric spell list), it says: "As resurrection, plus remains arenít needed." So it seems like there's no need for any part of the body, although it could've been clearer.
