I can not personally attest to Swampert's use, but I have seen quite a few RMTs where the defensive set was indeed the needed niche pokemon that could set up rocks, tank things, and phase. Remember there aren't exactly a lot of pure tanks left in OU. At the very least it should probably get a good retest before being deleted.
