Attaching camera body instead of lens collar to tripod?

How would you understand this suggestion from Sony  (last suggestion on that page):

- Are there things I can do to obtain a sharper image when shooting using a tripod?

If using heavy lens, to prevent camera shake, fix the camera itself with a tripod or monopod, instead of using just a tripod-mounting collar for the lens.

Do they suggest that it is better to mount the camera body on the tripod, instead of the lens collar (if the re is one)? Or there is a way to attach BOTH camera body and lens collar to the tripod, with a long plate or something similar?
