If it actually goes ahead, I gather it'll block the website without preventing you from using the client.
So for example, I'd be able to play on Full Tilt like normal, but if I wanted to check my Ironman status (LOL @ that ever being an issue for me anyway) or something else that actually involves looking at their website, I'd be blocked from accessing it.
My ISP is one of the ones that's refused to take part in the trial though, for which I'm thankful.
As for Carbon etc. not allowing Australians, dunno what's up there. Technically it's been illegal for any poker site to provide their services to Australians for years - maybe they're based in an extradition country?
