That seems the only sensible possibility, YaST should generate
the unit file based on /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager which it
already modifies based on the installer control file depending on
the chosen DE in the installer. /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager
provides a generic means to configure display managers beyond
which display manager to start and that should keep working.

That's also the reason why update-alternatives is not a good
option apart from the problems of priorities.

This sounds like generator based on /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager
could be an answer. The only problem is, when package is removed one
would need to run daenon-reload to recreate unit.
