That address is 100% reserved to go to the local machine ......

what do you call tricks here?
forward mysql prt 3306 of whatever host to 127.0.0.1:whatever port?

why guess if you get a error message?
surely one can restrict a user to hwatever IP address
as well as localhost and 127.0.0.1 is not the same
localhost is a unix-socket, 127.0.0.1 is TCP
with "skip-name-resolve" they are handeled different
however, as said, you need *at least* to provide error messages
you get since the crystal balls of most people are defect
