I submitted a ticket to a local hosting company asking if they have private registration for domains. This is the answer I got:

At the moment our packages have free domain privacy but that may change in the future.
Why do you need domain privacy, what type of site do you plan to run?
Kindly read our TOS at [xxxxxxxxxx]/terms most specially the Acceptable Use Policy.

It's disappointing that they would ask something like that plus give you their TOS at the same time. Their choice of words and manner of delivery makes me think they are suspicious.

I got my domain through Google Apps and the private registration was offered as part of the package, no questions asked.

Oh well... They probably have thousands upon thousands of customers so they don't need me.

This made it easier for me to choose the alternative solution.
