Or they can use Kernel:stable on top of Leap, which combines the
stability with extra hardware support.

This is a good point.

Indeed it is :-)

I would suggest a special download option: openSUSE Leap with
hardware support (mainly a Kernel from Kernel_stable; but optional
also an updated graphical subsystem etc.).

I like the idea. Distribute Leap with an LTS kernel, and provide an
option to upgrade to a more recent kernel for those that need that
hardware support. On "as is" basis, not full support, but neither
"kernel of the day".

All you need for that is to find someone who will take care of such
kernel branch and update it; the infrastructure exists and is publicly
available; kernel-source git has script to export the package exactly in
the form needed for OBS and OBS will provide you a repository you can
simply add with "zypper ar".

And now for the hard part: who is going to be that someone?
