That's because it's completely unnecessary.  Swap is something that is only
ever used by a running system (and consider that a hibernated system is
still a _running_ system, but with the power off).  This means that if you
shut down the system you can delete, slice, dice and recreate the swap
partition without any worries.  The problem is finding the space to do so.
