No, it does not. "Support point of view" is something completely

Well, yes and no. We get users who often ask about how to get the latest
kernel on their build because they want new features (not just backported

The kernel is probably going to be the biggest thing to sort out - making
sure that we're meeting user expectations in openSUSE while providing the
stability in SLE that comes from using a well-tested and not-bleeding-
edge kernel.

As long as the needs are met (either through a choice of "core kernel" or
"more current kernel" (or even "bleeding-edge kernel" for that matter), I
think we'll meet the needs of most users without too much trouble.
