Well, you could just start a wrapper script that does the magic, like
rcxdm ...
OTOH that DISPLAYMANAGER variable isn't the most beautiful and scalable
solution anyways. I guess we only still have it because noone bothered
to request YaST to support a different method. IMO having separate init
scripts (or systemd service files) for each DM would be just fine.
We don't have something like rcmta or rcwebserver either after all.

Something like display-manager.service (it is already specified in
systemd.special(7)) could be symlinked to the "wanted" display manager

Yep this was also my idea ... the question is how to do the work
done in /etc/init.d/xdm before any display manager is started

First, we should list what is really needed before starting display
manager (maybe some of the stuff there is only needed for some DM and
not for other).
Second, we could use ExecPreStart and share a common script between DM.

Another option (depending on the actions needed), at least for gdm,
could be to use internal dm "init" directory (gdm has an Init directory
whose content is started before doing anything "fancy").
