Wrong - The discussions so far on this topic with our Desktop Teams
all show an interest of putting newer desktops ontop of this platform.

For everybody knowledge, I was successful in ensuring GNOME 3.14.x
packages from GNOME:Factory (before 3.16 landed on Tumbledweed) could
work on SLE12 sources a few weeks ago. Few changes were needed on SLE12
for this (I only required one Intel driver update, which was fixing a
deadlock, trigger by GNOME > 3.10) and some changes in GNOME packages
(mostly disabling Wayland when building on SLE12) which were integrated
on GNOME:Factory.

I don't envision a lot of issues with GNOME 3.16, I'll try to rebuild it
on top of SLE sources, to see which adaptions are needed (probably not
much). And maybe, if I have some time, I might even try to do a spin of
SLE sources on OBS with GNOME 3.16 on top of it, just to see how a new
openSUSE Regular release could look like ;)

And I know that this hackweek project resulted in working KDE4 packages
for SLE12 (the author will probably blog about it as time permits).

So putting modern desktops on top of SLE12 doesn't seem to be impossible.
