If Gizmondo and Google Voice want do do it right, then there should be no per client restrictions - i.e. anyone using Ekiga.net or DIY SIP-server or whatever other SIP-provider then there should be no restrictions which other SIP-clients he/she can connect to.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but until now Gizmondo and Google Voice didn't allow to call to/from SIP-clients in other networks.

SIP is like e-mail - wherever your account is then you can mail other e-mail accounts. Can you imagine that if you have gmail account and your one friend has yahoo account and other friend has ibm account, you cannot email them?
