Why don't you include the swap in LVM ?

I don't see the point as it will never change in size.

Why not ? You could decide that you don't need swap any more and reclaim the space. Or if you use hibernation and add some RAM, you could decide to increase the swap size accordingly.

But in the case where encryption is used, it would have to be inside
the encrypted volume group of course.

Not necessarily. Swap could also use its own encrypted volume. Swap encryption could use a one-time random key if hibernation is not needed.
