What happens if a Storj client cuts off certain ip ranges?

We have covered here previously how SNO’s should not restrict ip ranges.
But what happens if a Storj client implements an ip block? Particularly if it is with a node they already have some data replicated to?
What happens?

It likely will not be able to upload anything because of lack of nodes. Retry could help, but satellite has a cache of nodes. So, upload would be a pain.
For the customer it would be better to specify a geofencing instead.

If clients use services like cloud flare blocking by ip range is highly likely.
