Private data isn't available to derived classes, but protected data is. That's how private and protected are defined.

In example 2, the one that doesn't work, the data is protected rather than private...

Why doesn't it work? Privateness and protectedness are there in the language to help keep you from shooting yourself in the foot, and they do the best they can without taking too much control away from you. If you were trying to do something like this in your program, I'd definitely call it shooting yourself in the foot (i.e. bad practice).
