I think a better idea would be to remove legal liability from Novell.

That is import _all_ the packages from all distros to openSUSE
project. So if any issues should arise Novell will not be responsible

I wish it would be so easy to waive off any legal liability :)

At best Novell can argue with 'un-knowledge' of data imported and having to
remove them as soon as informed by 3rd parties, but that is already moot
and would certainly not work if those packages are imported in a space where
only Novell has rights to write. And giving external parties write
permission solely to circumvent this does not sound very legal-fool-proof.

we hardly can, we obviously know about the risky packages and we are
required to react on notice (which you can even find in the mailing list
archives btw).
