Do you seriously wish to break unknown number or custom and third party
scripts and applications with hardcoded /etc/* paths (in addition to
lots of work on software which is part of the distribution - and be sure
that lot of that would end up being permanent openSUSE specific patches)

Sure, some design decisions taken 20+ (in this case, rather 40+) years

pretty sure many of the design decisions which seem to make perfect
sense now will provoke exactly the same reaction in 20 years...
