The result being a program whose overall thought processes (though not memories) are based on a snapshot of Flynn's at the time of the "mirroring". There's not a lot in the way of an official explanation to go on, unfortunately. :/|
It makes as much sense as anything, especially with Flynn's line about "You don't know that because I didn't when I created you." Sort of suggests Clu's pretty much unable to "grow" past Flynn's attitudes at his creation... though I might argue that he actually did...
(I also could perhaps argue he might have an emotional attachment to Tron. But, it would be for another discussion as to how Sam might feel about Tron at this moment.)

Firstly, because we saw Tron light up again blue, and there's no reason for that to happen if not to keep open the possibility that he could be back later. Secondly, because they talked about how reintegration would destroy Flynn - they never said it would kill everyone else in the Grid, and I think that would have been worth mentioning as a reason Flynn hadn't done it.|
For the first-- I always thought that was for closure. We see him definitely revert back before he "dies" and awww, everybody is happy. (though if you want I could make an argument that if anything were to survive that, it might be Tron.)
For the second-- it's possible that it's just that Flynn doesn't *know.* Which may or may not be a stretch, depending on how you want to look at it-- whether you consider we're getting the info *from Flynn*, whose understanding may be imperfect, or *from the moviemakers.*

Is he gonna swim ALL the way to the city? .
I don't think programs worry about breathing air. So he could walk across the ocean floor like the ISO's did. Perhaps the ISO's will come back with Tron, or have some kind of base hidden under the sea of simulation.
I too am not sure programs need to breathe, or if they do, I'm not sure the Sea counts (we'd need more info on what it IS, I think, to be able to form too many concrete ideas on its properties, but just for myself I've come up with some idea-- I think based on some stuff folks here have said, though I can't remember if any of that was canon from somewhere or just speculation-- that it's some sort of primordial soup more than a body of water in the conventional sense we'd think about it. Hence, perhaps Tron survived the blast because it protected him, and perhaps one does not need to breathe in there, etc. And even, if you wish, perhaps his circuitry changed color because it helped to "repair" him-- because you notice HE changed even though the COLOR didn't-- and that could have some specific meaning, or perhaps they just didn't want us to have that cue that he changed before they actually showed him going against Clu).
In one of my fics... I think perhaps it's Angel
... I have him drifting, and he's not harmed by being underwater. Presumably, I suppose, he might get somewhere (and in yet another fic that is not finished, he does), but again... we don't actually know if the Sea of Simulation has currents of any sort, so perhaps he wouldn't get anywhere at all.
