CallLog and Private Number (again, different question)

If you add a call log entry for a Private Number by passing the string "Private Number" into the constructor, in the phone application it shows up as "Private Number". Unfortunately if you press TALK it tries to dial the ASCII representation of Private Number. Using the built in phone application and receiving a call from a private number results in the call log saying "Private Number" but pressing the TALK key does nothing. How does the built in app add the Private Number entry such that it is not dialable?

This is not possible from a third party application.  The Phone application makes use of non public APIs to accomplish this.
