My guess is that the package has a non-zero epoch and zypper
can't deal with it. Check the last line of:
rpm -qp --provides mtf-0.0.1-1.i586.rpm

If the package has an epoch, please open a bug report against zypper.

Found the root cause: zypper expects a sourcerpm tag in binary packages.

Yes, if a package doesn't contain a "sourcerpm" tag, it's a source
So your mtf-0.0.1-1.i586.rpm is really "mtf-0.0.1-1.src.rpm"?

Zypper should be able to install src.rpm packages, please open
a bug against it.
