Gramm-Leach merged two long standing policy objectives: i) broadening the scope of activities in which BHC conglomerates could engage (thereby promoting profitability); and ii) preserving the segregation of bank entities within those conglomerates. It had nothing to say about BHCs engaging in swaps (which were simply an unregulated product pre-DFA). However I think there's a good policy argument for requiring BHC's engaged in swaps to adopt FHC status (ie subject to higher regulatory capital minimums) - haven't heard anyone raise this though.
