Yes, the RPM SPEC files which were proprietary in the past, are now
Open-Sourced too with v4.0.
As for the kernel-modules - I like the openSUSE approach very much,
without dkms.

One *huge* difference: v4.0 has now fully Open-Source Additions, which
should be shipped with openSUSE.
Previously Guest Additions were not shipped with openSUSE, because
they were 95% Open-Source with 5% proprietary code mixed.
hm which additions do you mean ?,
virtualbox-ose-guest-kmp-*, xorg-x11-driver-virtualbox-ose and (if I
remember correctly also ) virtualbox-ose-guest-tools are already on
liveCD ...

Summary: Open-Sourced with VirtualBox v4.0: (in previous release those
were proprietary)

-User Manual Sources
-USB 1.1
-Installers (Windows + RPM SPECs)
-Shared Folders for Windows Guests
