GRUB should be in its own partition, tentatively containing repair tools 
This makes Ubuntu or any Linux  undestroyable by Windows or anyone.
Restoring GRU/Ubuntu would be a most standard setting of a boot flag.

Similarly, the swap partition should be a Linux file.
This frees the user from swap considerations and opens Linux to dynamic 
swap size.
I once made twin disks and I fell in a trap.
I thought Linux would use the only swap partition on the disk.
But the swap partition was referenced by UUID.

Using both features would make the partition count a statu quo.

I, as a Linux sower, find both topics important when I make an 
installation.* *
