Yes, maybe the forward reference does give a wrong hint about a
connection between sign-off and pgp-signing. However, I would still vote
for the following change suggested by sbeller@google.com:

-Do not PGP sign your patch, -at least for now-. Most likely, your (...)

I don't think doubling on the 'your' will make the heading clearer. The
main intention of this change is to avoid mixups with pgp-signing and
that would IMHO not improve by that.
Besides, I find the colon in the heading a bit awkward. Is the following
version as expressive as with the colon?

-(5) Sign your work
+(5) Certify your work by adding Signed-off-by
