I don't think the slot swap proposal is going anywhere, while US is engaged in merger talks with United. I would expect a combined UA/US entity to divest DCA slots rather than accumulating more. I am less certain about LGA. UA is traditionally weak in NYC, and the former US stronghold is falling apart. Even combined the two would probably find it difficult to get a foot on the ground there - I wouldn't be surprised if they sold a bunch of LGA slots too. We really have to wait for the outcome of the ongoing consolidation efforts. If UA ends up merging with CO, US may revive the deal with Delta. Personally, I think that the UA/US merger is the more likely scenario, though.

Isn't there a huge penalty if either carrier drops out?

Quoting cokepopper (Reply 3):

The DOT has yet to rule on their updated proposal, however based on past precedents and the recent DOJ ruling it would appear the DOT will not budge from their original ruling which DL and US found to be a deal breaker. Thus between the potential DOT rejection and now US looking for merger partners I think the slot swap deal is unlikely to proceed.
