If your registrar had any sense, they would have made 'private' their standard offering.

There is no discount for positively opting out, because they now have to maintain records of your consent.

In some respects, I'm a little lost as to why this is such a big issue, the EU registrars seem to already have in place the relevant mechanisms to protect their domain holders data they just seem to be reluctant to use them.
