Of the benchmarks done by mjambor, there were no compelling benchmark results that speak for v2. To give you a reminder:

The primary driver for upgrading the ISA level wasn't for performance.
But then, what was, and why is that something rated higher than a performance argument?
For a business there's always marketing (and there comparing with competitors).
On the official website of SUSE  I can read:
At SUSE, we believe we all bear a responsibility to preserve our planet for generations to come. We want to be part of the solution to the challenges facing our world.
So the capability to run an older system and thus to avoid having to throw it away and to harm the environment by that action should be supported actively by SUSE.
Seems marketing is more important than SUSE's focus areas.
