The full report on phase 1 of the trial, the lab test, is at http://www.acma.gov.au/webwr/_assets/main/lib310554/isp-level_internet_content_filtering_trial-report.pdf 
  ... and although the filters are listed as A, B, C etc I'm sure  
someone could easily reverse-engineer the feature list.

While I don't recall their capabilities re NNTP, NONE of them could  
effectively filter P2P stuff like BitTorreny. In other words, they're  
useless.
