One system I've used which did unlimited swap to filesystem space was
Apollo's Domain/OS.

Basically, any runaway process would fill your disk, which made it
tricky to write code which was robust in low-memory, low-freespace
conditions, because you ran into all limits simultaneously..

Basically, the rule of thumb there was "don't let the disks fill,
you'll be sorry.."
