I totally disagree based on real world experience.

Having a usb port does not mean usb booting is supported.

Same for a CDROM drive (disabled in BIOS).

However, that point is moot anyway since even without a bootable usb port you
can use a USB stick to start openSUSE. See

So all openSUSE would have to do – if it really wants to consider those with
neither DVD, nor bootable USB port – is to provide an image to do this or
integrate it into the netinstall.
