I think it's more important for the HTML to be "good HTML" than it is for it to validate. "Good HTML" includes tables only used for tabular data, tabular-data tables marked up well, classes favored over inline styles, good order and alt text for text browsers, ...

My reasoning: any browser has to be able to deal with invalid HTML to survive on today's web, but violating the other rules leads to accessibility problems and makes the HTML less maintainable.
