What if we do it the other way around?  We have Tumbleweed as the
"official" openSUSE version

So, in a sense, Factory becomes a unstable repo for Tumbleweed and we
release stabilized snapshots of Tumbleweed. And we maintain those, then.

Whats the difference to what we do today?

Factory is unstable for openSUSE and we release stabilized snapshots of
openSUSE. And we maintain those, then.

Essentially it's replacing one name (openSUSE) with another name
(Tumbleweed) for the same thing (stabilized Factory) :D

The difference is that the rolling distribution would be expected to
be stable while Factory is not. To put it in terms of our current
structure, openSUSE released would be pulled from Tumbleweed rather
than Factory.

The point of the releases is that it would have fixed package
versions, it would get bugfix-only improvements for a certain period
of time. It would also have branding changes, and would provide an
opportunity to make more core changes that are difficult under the
rolling-release model.
