However, what is the status of this in the US?

I would only accept the word of a lawyer on this, not a mailing list
opinion. Not on something that might be legally binding, and for which
you might be held accountable. And even then, a lawyer who hopefully
had experience in this kind of law. While that's not a full guarantee,
a legal opinion by a trained professional would hold a whole lot more
weight in court.

Being legally bound is one thing.  Being bound by your peers is another.

If you would bind someone to a PGP signed statement, then you yourself must likewise be bound.
