I disagree.  If you publish a 192.168.x.x record as a public MX, you
have no idea where your mail will go.  What happens if on Customer X's
network, someone sets up a malicious server at 192.168.x.x that
intercepts all outgoing mail and replaces it with inflammatory mail?

IMO, any domain that publishes *any* bogus MX record should be rejected.
