Is it legal to trade in-game items for DLC keys?
I have some coal, I would like to trade them for DLC; Is this legal?

Nice to point out the careless use of language, just dont laugh too soon. Im sure there are lots of MBA's, execs, lawyers etc. (=greedy malicious fools) in or associated with the gaming industry, that would love to see their terms raised to law.

I can assure you, their interpretation of 'outside of the game' means anything that is not obtainable in the game (=anything but items and mana).
It is mainly there to stop RMT (selling for cash). However from steams and TE's point of view, trading a game item for a DLC just plays into their pocket anyway, so they dont have too much incentive to persue it, though they are officially against it and do not provide means to facilitate it.
Secondly, it is there to stop cheats/hacks from profiting from creating/duping/botfarming sought after items. If that starts to happen, they might as well just open up their own official cash-shop for items and mana, to profit themselves instead of the cheats.

You real problem (assuming your path is clean), is that they do not provide a safe (betrayal-immune) way to trade something outside the game with something inside the game, unlike the ingame trading and afkshops. You risk your coal or the other party risks their whatever. And both risk sanctions against their steam and DD accounts.
