If this person is not a apugger, they ought to be. Anyway some interesting suggestions on using 5072 as a pictorial film. I recently received 5 rolls of that stuff, probably from the same seller. Haven't had a chance to play with it yet.
Suggestion to shot it at 12 or 6 with filter is rather interesting - I've shot about 20 rolls of that stuff and I'd underexposure. Get better results with rating it slower.
Also that redscale thing - redscale is red. Unfiltered 5072 is blue or blue-cyan. There are some images on flickr when searching for "vericolor slide".
It depends whether you print it or view it as a slide. The negative of red is cyan. It is designed to offset the orange base of film when viewed directly as a positive. When printed in a minilab it would have the opposite effect.
Sorry, I don't understand what you mean and how that applies to the 5072 and redscale.

Any print film to a negative camera film (whether the print film is intended as duplicate or as a slide-film) has to cope with the orange mask of the camera film.
This means that the sensitivity of the print film is not only tuned to the absorbtion of the image dyes (in contrast to a natural scene) but also to the filtration due to the mask. It is thus less red-sensitive. A bit like a tungsten camera film.
If you use the filter pack printed on the package and use it to print negative film you should be pretty close. That amounts to a Daylight to tungsten filter, plus the equivalent blue/cyan filter needed to offset the orange base of normal negative film plus the filter pack printed. Have fun.
