For simplicity, I did not mention nor I did include in the
figures that the 4D encoded symbols are randomized before
sending them to the transmitters. This procedure is described
in the 1000BASE-T standard.
The produce assures that the output levels send down the
wires (or the fiber) are DC balanced. However, you will not
get the nice extremely short running disparity that one could
get with the 8b/10b encoder, since the randomization is based
on the scrambler. The scrambler used is 33 delays long (much
longer than the scrambler used in Fast Ethernet) and it is
expected to produce a better short term balance than the one
obtained in Fast Ethernet.
The clock can be recovered (in the same way as it is recovered in
Fast Ethernet). Many simulations were run during the development
of the 1000BASE-T standard and presented during its meetings
showing that this is the case. There is already a well known
company that has 1000BASE-T transceivers on Silicon, and
has shown that they work in the last Interop gathering.
