Ricoh GW-4 and Pentax PH-RBA72

I do not want to start a new thread for my question, so I am using Robert’s thread.

Everyone knows that the hood of Ricoh GW-4 is rather poor and flimsy dust magnet. The conversion lens has a 72mm thread, so I was wondering if I could replace the original hood with Pentax PH-RBA72. In theory, it should work relatively well since it is designed for Pentax HD DA 16-85mm F3.5-5.6 ED DC WR that also has 72mm thread. Are there any issues I should know about before buying the hood?
