Assuming that he cares about SEO. If you don't care about people 
finding your site via search engines, then it doesn't matter. For most 
of the projects that I have been involved with thus for in my career as 
a web developer for example (personal, professional, non-profit, 
for-profit), SEO has not mattered.
