as to answer you question you will have to option to allow users to run windows update and touch microsoft or to touch you WSUS server....or for them to get the update list from your WSUS server and pull from microsoft...

i would apply gpo to you computer or user group not the entire domain....

Client Side Settings can be set in Group Policy so you should not have to "touch" the clients to make any changes.  As a best practice, you should move the computers out of the default "computers" folder and move them to their own dedicated ou.  Then you can apply your new policy to that new ou.
