If there is no plan to use it, could you change default behaviour to
"DownloadInAdvance" in /etc/zypp/zypp.conf?

I would vote for this one.

Please be very careful with changing to download in advance as the
default. The risk is a full /var partition. And as this task is
performed with uid 0 we might cause bigger trouble and have no
protection from the usual filesystem reserve.

Good point.

Therefore I suggest to stay with the current approach even if it is not
the most elegant one.

Yes, maybe we should implement rough estimation of the needed disk space
& issue warning if the reserve is low _before_ making
download-all-install-all the default.
