At least for users of Twitter.com--and today, at the Twitter conference Chirp, founder Ev Williams said that 57% of the 105 million users just use the website--you can't use the automatic ReTweet feature to resend a protected account message. 

A private account's message can always be cut & pasted & I'm not sure about how third party clients handle RTs of protected updates. But Twitter has put in some safeguards so it's not easy. You can't ReTweet a protected account message by accident.
