Windows Service Pack Automatic Upgrades Blocker

I am reading this article saying the blocker will expire in the coming months.  We customize the registry on our company's PCs to point to our Windows Software Update Server to get update - not using GPO.  Do you think we will be affected by what is mentioning in this article?

As far as our servers, we use Windows 2000 and Windows 2003.  They should not be affected, right?
