The US does have a consular office in Oaxaca.  I emailed the contact address
and received a quick reply from Mark Reyes.  It said:
I think the State Dept. announcement is trying to be on the safe side with
its information.  It suggests that you monitor the news reports about the
political situation here and then carefully consider your plans.  What I can
tell you about the daily situation here is that there have been no
demonstrations since the first week of December 2006.  The city is
completely open and operating; federal police left in early January.  All
barricades have been removed from streets in and around the city, traffic is
unimpeded; all public buildings are open, as is local commerce, tourist
attractions, etc.  I think you will be quite safe if you decide to come
here.

I would take all state department travel advisories with a grain of salt.
Use all the caution and common sense you would when visiting anywhere that
is not home.  Pay attention to your surroundings, don't venture off into
areas that are questionable.
The state department always has warnings for Mexico.  I've travelled there
without incident; including some places I was told not to go.

The US also has 'World Wide' warnings, too.
It all makes me think that there are actually Italian mothers running the
advisories...
