Hmm, but what about the 5-year maintenance duration for SLES/SLED?
Isn't it guaranteed to get support and upgrades/security fixes for
the whole 5 years? I mean, we cannot just stop browsing with our
SLED systems after three years... Especially not if it looks like
SLES/D 11 will not be released in this century or decade or sth :-)

I also feel that considering the price you pay for SLED and SLES
one would expect to get at least security upgrades for these systems with
higher priority than for openSuSE. With the increasing length of the
SLES release cycle, this problem will occur more often in the future.

But wouldn't it be easier to have some additional packages of
gtk, cairo etc., installing in some non-standard locations in /opt
and use LD_LIBRARY_PATH to get FF3 running?
