Repetition of what it follows.

What does `...' follow?  BODY.
Is BODY repeated?        No.

For Emacs, `...' does not mean repetition of what it follows (per what Eli has
said).  Instead, it means that what it follows is a &rest parameter.

For Emacs, (X BODY...) means the same as (X &rest BODY) and (X . BODY).

Which, as I said, is a legitimate, if unwise and unusual, choice.
It just needs to be spelled out in the doc.

Read the thread.  I'm not going to repeat everything that has been said.
