Not quite sure what you're objecting to. If you are against the use of
swap files rather than swap partitions then yes, it does need to be
explained, because as far as I am aware a swap file is the better
choice in virtually all situations (and is what I've been using
exclusively since Linux 2.6 removed the downsides).

If in fact there are any remaining downsides I'm unaware of, it would
be good to see them documented.
