If all else fails, do you tell the customer that it is
safe to ignore those warnings and vulnerabilities
because you, on a hacker's perspective, was not able
to penetrate the network by making use of those
vulnerabilities found, that the hacker might have a
hard time as well and eventually opt for another
target?

I am no security expert, but security by obscurity does not seem the way to go! The fact that you did not find any good 
documentation does not imply that some old hacker with a grudge against your client does not have the full docs in his 
basement!
