Add HTML class to BODY tag when dragging an element

It would be great to have an extra CSS class added to the BODY element when something is dragged. So far only an inline style is set : 'cursor: move'.

Adding a class (like 'drag-on') would let define useful CSS styles like :

body.drag-on .empty-container { border: 1px dashed #CCCCCC }

to easily identify where the element could be dragged to, while not perturbing the user until a drag-drop action is initiated.

This already exists. See for documentation and for a demo (the second drag-drop pair).

If you want a class added to the html element, use the dragstart and dragstop events to add and remove it.
