DNS vs Traffic Shaping ?

DNS Cloudflare can circumvent the practice of Traffic Shaping of providers or only with the use of VPN can this be done?

This may be possible in the future with the more widespread deployment (and standardization?) of encrypted SNI:

Only thing is the RFC notes in 6.2:

client-facing servers SHOULD NOT require SNI,

As I understand it, it would be fairly easy for traffic shaping to drop the ESNI and force regular SNI connection, still allowing zero-rating or blocking of specific websites. HN Discussion.
