The code passed to eval is treated at a function declaration.  Without
a name, it is a syntax error.

Because now it is a valid function expression.  You could also use a
valid function declaration:

eval('function stuff7() {alert("stuff..");}')

No surprises there, it is a user guide, not a specification.  Use
ECMA-262, section 10.2.2.

It's a syntax error.
