I don't know about that. Before we abandoned our prior managed-hosting facility for stuff we managed ourselves, ALL of the servers they were managing were using 1.0.0.0/8 for their "internal" address schemes. And this is a pretty decent sized company (Terremark) who I would have thought would have had a clue on it. 

That said, I agree "people who didn't listen to RFC1918 deserve every bit of pain that they've got coming to them", but I bet there's more morons out there than you're giving the universe credit for.
