Thanks (and also to other people that don't get an answer),

well, not really. If its not a domain-swapping, but rather a "subdomain
swapping" or "strand swapping", which also occurs frequently, then it
literally fits my description. But since the domain is swapped, of
course the unswapped monomer will have considerable stability, too. What
I am really looking for is structures where "the monomer" would be just
a mess, and only the oligomer makes any sense, structurally.
