Don't know about IWF but Russia's Roskomnadzor doesn't have nationwide proxies. It sends blacklists to ISPs, who then block websites themselves.

But IP-based voating restrictions are still a bad idea because of dynamic IPs, carrier-level NAT and other problems.

Ah, thanks for the info. I'm more familiar with IWF. They do the same thing, sending blacklists to ISPs. The ISPs then route (not DNS jiggering, actual routing/traffic interception) IP addresses of sites with blocked pages through an ISP-owned transparent proxy farm.
