25fps footage playing fine at 29.97fps!! Should it be?

I have a problem where I have an edit that has been shot at 25fps, which needs to be delivered at 29.97fps for reasons I wont go into.
I tried the obvious, by dropping in the 25fps edit into a 29.97 timebase in premiere and the film has played back as it should, no frame stutters, or audio sync issues. The edit is around 3 minutes long. I have also checked the render on youtube, and it plays back fine.
Technically this shouldn't play back without issues? But it is. Am I missing something? perhaps this is risky territory, what do people think?
