You miss the point. It doesn't matter what YOU do, if you publish your public key you have no control over what anyone else does!
I may only use my private key for signing. If J Random Hacker decides to use the matching public key for encryption there's nothing I can do about it.
And with the law in question, if "I don't have the key" is no defense, then "I never use the key for encryption" will be even less effective.
