Wouldn't the Federation have to remove the body, though? What about contamination of the Veridian civilization?
The novel The Return addresses this subject, to a degree -- immediately following the events of the movie, Starfleet begins the process of removing the crashed spaceframe of the Enterprise-D saucer section, citing Prime Directive concerns over potential contamination of the Veridian IV civilization once it gains spaceflight.

Can't remember what Starfleet's stance was concerning Kirk's body in the novel, though.
