Server side contacts removal

Hello,
As I have recently learned contacts added to Skype, including their personal data manually associated by the user, are stored permanently on the Skype servers. Even if the user removes the contact from his client the contact and its associated information remains stored on the Skype servers.
I would like to know what is the procedure to request removal of the contacts at Skype and secondly why is this not mentioned in the Privacy Policy of Skype?
Thanks
PS
Why is this a privacy concern? Apart from the fact this allows any government organisation to learn who you ever had as a contact (conspiracy theorists rejoice!), it's trivial for anyone with access to your account to find out whether you had person X as a contact in the past. It's enough to try to re-add that person - if the contact is added immediately without waiting for his/her authorisation - yes, you had.
