I recall from the NASA Columbia investigation that bodies recovered from in-flight breakups, or from the failure of a pressure vessel at a significant height, the bodies in all previous recoveries were denuded; this was the case in Air India 182 and Pan Am 103.

The fact that bodies from the AF447 are fully clothed, I assume, rules out any in-flight breakup and explosive decompression?
