 I'm not sure that we're going to resolve this issue completely. I see
 three ways forward

 1. Have all private posts hidden from the tag cloud regardless of user.
 2. Have the cloud dynamically generated.
 3. Accept and document the current behavior.

 I don't think that 2. is a good choice. It'd use an expensive database
 query that could become an issue on large and/or popular installations. 1.
 sounds like a good idea but I suspect that implementation may become more
 complex than it appears to be.

 Without any further feedback I'm going to suggest that documenting the
 behavior in the codex would be the best way forward.
