We should be opening a FATE request to revert that for swap partitions.

We should be using PARTUUID indeed.
But then again, is there not some magic which just automatically goes
through all swap devices, irrespective of any device or symlink name,
and goes to activate them?

Hmm. PARTUUID doesn't help you for msdos partitions, right?
Not everything's GPT...

kernel 3.7:

util-linux 2.24:
https://git.kernel.org/cgit/utils/util-linux/util-linux.git/commit/?id=d67cc2889a

PARTUUID it is, then ;-)

That will make the system prone to other modifications: When swap
is on partition 6 and you delete partition 5 the number of the
swap partition changes to 5 and you again have to update fstab.
