I think your missing the point of Leap, Leap is meant to be stable and

most of its lifecycle, it intentionally doesn't get the newest
everything stuff is only upgraded if there is a really good reason, this
is what some openSUSE users want. For people who want the latest stuff
tumbleweed is a far better option.

As a user, I expect that, but I also expect to be able to install the
newest something that I may need from a separate extra repository. That
is, keep most of the system on the default Leap packages, but if say,
I'm interested in photography, I want the newest available on the
photography repo - which happens with KDE, but not with Gnome tooling.

Just an example :-)
