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.

I am never going to decide that I don't want any swap at all. In the
unlikely event I want more, I can add it from inside the VG.

AFAIK, hibernation can only use one swap, which must be large enough to store the resume image.
