That should not exist.  I demand its non-existance.  Unless, of course,
Google is letting one through as 
a) a source of search terms that people consider privacy-sensitive
b) a way to avoid bad publicity if they were to stop it
c) a service to the more-privately-conscious part of the community

(and that makes up for a quarter million searches a day!?  That's
serious ad-money)

For better evidence:
Try creating a search engine that just retuns Google's results AND makes
money without coming to an arrangement with Google ...
