Why not add:

*Other Desktops where you click on a radio button.
This can open a submenu showing Cinnamon, Enlightenment, Mate, XFCE ...

Cheers!

One downside is that involves modifying yast whenever someone wants to
add a new desktop whereas with this proposal all that needs to be
modified to add / remove desktops is the patterns package.

True.

Can't a method be designed so that it loads some configuration file that contains the desktop tittle, description, patterns needed, suggested login manager if primary desktop, link to photo, whatever else?

The file could be in the install media and online, perhaps on the oss repo.

The desktops listed there should be "approved", whatever the process needs to be. And would be tested with that automated process, what is it, QA?
