I dont think much stuff actually does validate, and when customers are
insisting on small budgets its not a huge consideration or one you will
convince them of the benefits of easily.

Whilst I did get my companie's site validating recently that was mainly just
an exercise - I know for a fact that the CMS manager I'm writing simply
wouldnt get anywhere near validation. A later version might, but right now
the key is to get some sales out there, get some cash in, and worry about
validation a few versions later!

What was the conclusion that you came to regarding why Google haven't
bothered with validation?
