I don't even know anyone who has a swim step!
But what do you foresee as an issue?
-With davits and the step down, you simply pull the dingy up, initially it lays against the swim step, then comes up, swings in and rests against the stern above the step. You may have to push or guide it a bit at first, but no big deal really. I see no reason to have the step down with the dingy in davits anyway.
-With davits and the step up and closed it's no different than a normal boat.
