well.. I'm not that convinced that swap "needs" that; I've always
thought of shutdown rather being a wrapper to inform users about
a timed shutdown than being necessary to keep things clean.
IMHO it's a workaround; the kernel should properly unconfigure
swap partitions/-files by itself before unconfiguring RAIDs.
