Evergreen/13.1 a little peculiar, as 13.2 will almost certainly be
around for longer.

yes but 13.1 was announced long time ago, long before Leap announcement

And long before openSUSE announced it would become the first major FOSS
distro to terminate 32bit. Meanwhile, the latest Debian release offers both
32 bit and 5 years of support. Is there somebody paying people to provide 32
bit support there? How much extra effort is required provide 32 in
conjunction with 64?

I believe that this was discussed already very extensively at
opensuse-factory mailing list few months ago (and you participated in
this discussion) so I don't see point in reviving this discussion here:
issue is not amount of effort but lack of people who are both
knowledgeable enough and willing to spend their time supporting 32bit.

Furthermore comparing openSUSE to Debian is misleading given that both
distributions are following different release models and target audience
is different.
