1. There is no rule against a Pawn swapping with a King on the first rank. As stated, the Pawn will only regain the double step when on the second rank. Maybe I'll try to make this more clear.

2. Because the King cannot swap when in check, he is not much more difficult to attack. A King swapping with a Pawn in the mid-game will likely be exposed to danger. Hence, I don't think the game is too drawish.

Thanks for the comments.
