Did you see this?

I didn't say a false key, I said a dummy key. One that will work, but
would unlock a dummy outer volume - but not all data within it. There is
no way of telling the inner contents of such a drive from random data.
There are several products that can do that. The act specifically says
that if there are multiple keys then you can choose which one to

Destroying a false key and claiming you didn't have the key would be
illegal if you still possessed the real key.

That just means you can revoke the key when they're done.  Giving a
false key is not giving a key.  

You can play whatever games you want (ie microwave a different USB
frob while shipping the real key to a trusted associate in a country
without an extradition tready), but that isn't a loop hole in the law
that can be legally exploited, it's a dodge that can land you in heaps
more trouble if you're caught.
