They are subject to poison like all other.

The above statement is true. It has been so since 6th edition came out.

just think of the weapons not as poisoned but as blessed, and so, they burn, crumble or de-stabilise the magic animating the undead.

i just read the rules concerning poisened attacks and it states that:
'unliving targets are immune to poisen'

most vampire counts models are undead therefore unliving...comments??

Only in the 6th edition book, not the 7th edition.

Unliving is not the same as Undead, GW meant "inanimate" as evidenced by the 6th edition Undead FAQ.

Undead means can't die (Like a zombie), unliving means can't live (Like a cannon). That's all it means :)

Maybe they at garlic?
It would work against the vampires... (or so people claim)

Yes, undead are affected - like many have said, think of them using blessed/anointed/holy/silver weapons.

The rules mention 'unliving' targets - this is primarily buildings and warmachines.

Or the poison being some kind of acid i.e. burns through bone as easily as flesh...

Acid rats?

Why not? At the end of the end day it's an arbitrary game concept; in the wars of the vampires I'm sure it was customary to lace all arrows with silver or a similar anti-undead concotion thereby making them "posion attacks", but at the end of the day, poison always affects nearly everything equally on the tabletop :)
