So, what do you think is better and why?

I'd prefer to keep the 3.1.X schema as long as possible (i.e. until
there is
a `master` only bug fix or a feature).

I'd also prefer keeping 3.1.X in both branches as long as possible, but as I said, mistakes will happen and one day we will have the same "versions" but different content of RPMs.

One possibility would be to switch master from 3.1.X to 3.2.X immediately when there is a change that should not got to SLE-12. Then we could be pretty sure that versions will not conflict AND anyone else will understand well that such change is already there and thus versions have to differ.
