My experience has been that the best way to deal with a client who insists on using a difficult process is to use it and let them see what the result of not improving it is.

Of course, if I was their employee or manager, I'd try to implement changes or develop workarounds that avoid the worst-case consequences, but is that really what this client is paying you to do?

I know that tomorrow is Christmas, but giving them solutions to their infrastructure issues for the price of technical writing sounds to me like a gift that goes way beyond a stocking stuffer.
