Why shouldn't it work?  RFC1918 space is 172.16/12, there's no overlap.

I know that, you know that.   but
172.0.0.1  is a common typo of  127.0.01

And there are apparently a lot of people running around using 172.0.0.0/24
in examples, or erroneously saying it's part of a range reserved for
private networks.

So I would say they've come into posession of a rather undesirable
piece of IP address real-estate, as it were.
