There not private, they are hosted in countries that MS can't easily get too. I guess the current status is that they have been going on for almost the entire life of Win Vista/7. The only way to get this out would probably be to end KMS. Currently the KMS server is supposed to be registered directly with MS, if that isn't the case then there is a much bigger issue than OEM activation.
