Well, it sounds like it is only a proposal and hasn't been put into effect yet. If it was, then I think de Jong would be effectively locked-in with Canada, but Jonathan de Guzman, who hasn't yet played for any country, would essentially be a free agent as he is right now.

nothing happens if nothing is proposed. if uefa decides unanimously on such a proposal, they have such clout i'm sure fifa would follow with the logic - while they may not recognize people like Adam Street leaving Canada, they certainly recognize the controversy the Dutch went through with the Kalou's or whoever it was!

I would imagine if UEFA approves, it will only be a recommendation to be considered by FIFA. Also, I would suspect that most of the players such as De Jong would be grandfathered and it would only apply to those that are younger than 19 now. Also, it would not effect De Guzman as he has not played for Canada so he is committed to no one right now.
