Hi Andy,

What is your brief?  If you are there just to build the site, just do 
as they ask.

If  you are there to provide some consultancy services, then put 
together a report outlining all the problems and provide suggestions as 
to how to provide a similar look/feel/functionality, but in an 
accessible way.  At the end off the day it is down to the client, 
because they are paying.

The unfortunate thing is that in reality not many people are going to 
care enough to do anything about it.  I guess you could talk to the 
DRC, however this will may jeopardise your contract.
