The problems I have with doing this is:
1) It doesn't help with SEO
2) It is extremely time consuming for larger, older sites and this time is better spent elsewhere.
Now I'm all for following standards when creating new sites, but going through hundreds of lines of code changing <br>s into <br/>s etc seems pointless.
On the other hand if the clients want to spend money on this then who am I to stop them?
Does anyone have any thoughts on the merits of WC3 validation?

The key is to make sure they're fully aware that it's probably not going to have any impact at all on rankings. It sounds like this is already the case, so at least they're hopefully doing it for the right reasons.
If it were me I'd be looking at ways to streamline upkeep issues while I was at it. If I were going to have to dig through all of the code anyway, I'd certainly try to employ use of includes for those elements that are on every page or a significant number of pages. So that the next time someone needed to make any sort of massive change it would be much easier to accomplish.

Yep! And what Randy said, too.
Maybe you can use this opportunity to upsell them on a completely new redesign while you're at it?

Good idea! The site is an old and very over-complicated, the amount it would cost them to sort out the validation won't be a huge amount less than a totally new build

what do you say...

If the errors are numerous and problematic though, then Id do what Jill said. The redesign would be better for both of you
