You can just copy the /etc/zypp/repos.d/ directory.

Did I miss something, or is this feature has been already implemented a
long time ago? See
http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Zypper_usage#Export.2FImport_repositories
Is zypper fulfilling the export/import repositories features? If not,
what is missing/could be improving ?

That is zypper, but YaST does not know what to do with a repo file.
Try this: use YaST to add
http://r.opensu.se/server:php:applications.repo

+ Indeed its a huge help, if yast handle repositories export/import, to
+ new users and enterprises that will install in a mass pc, I will
+ apreciate that effort to put it on yast!!
