disable valid IPv4 address check to allow scanning Hamachi (126.96.36.199/8) targets?

When I try scanning an Hamachi client’s 188.8.131.52/8 IP address, nmap
states “doArp can only handle IPv4 addresses” and aborts. I know this
is because Hamachi’s assignment of 184.108.40.206/8 IP addresses is unofficial,
but it would be nice if the valid IPv4 address check could be disabled
so Hamachi clients and other hosts with unofficially-assigned IP
addresses could still be scanned.
I searched for a solution/workaround but only found discussions about
Hamachi’s unofficial IP address assignments, not any way to scan Hamachi
I do not think these details matter in this case, but I am currently
using nmap v5.50 on Windows 7 Professional IA-32.
