At http://en.opensuse.org/Package_Repositories there are a few URLs for
extra packages not included in the OSS distribution. These seem to be a
bit misleading, and maybe a bit inaccurate (for example, a couple of the
URLs still point to 10.0 repositories).

There is no reference to

http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/SL-10.1/non-oss-inst-source/

which seems to me to include all the other stuff, including Java and
java applications, other non-OSS packages such as realplayer, etc. In
short, for 10.1, all the non-OSS packages seem to be collected in one
place, removing the need for multiple extra installation sources in Yast
(except, of course, for such essential places like Packman :) )
