Conclusions

While complementary and local currencies seem to be tolerated by the US federal government, any currency which goes outside of those two overlapping boxes risks harsh penalties.

The successful Liberty Dollar project is the most obvious example of this, though it is arguable that they might not have gotten into trouble if they had not issued coinage (in violation of USC 18 §486).
