I was looking into a future purchase (Christmas) of an older iMac G4/800 or something similar for my son. There are plenty of them out there, but I'm noticing not one of them comes with the OS CD. What gives? What would I do if I needed the CD? Thanks!

Prioritize a seller that includes the restore disks, always.
A lot of them sell the Macs without the disk and sell the disk on their own simply to make more money off of the buyer. I've even read in places where some will sell the restore disks (which are model/hardware specific install disks and will not work with other Macs) as OS X full install disks : so if ever anyone buys that restore disk and needs it in an emergency, it won't work!
Keep looking : I'm sure there are honest people out there. Maybe try craigslist in your area.
