Can anyone please define "swamp"? What does the collection of PI
prefixes differ in compared to the collection of PA aggregate prefixes
other than probably prefix length?

"Swamp" was the organisational chaos left from the early IPv4 phase.
I don't see how a /32 set aside by each RIR for /48 PI prefixes can be
called "swamp" unless you define all PI users as "mud". :-)
