Well if you have unanswered technical question, please ask them here (but let’s
create a new thread).

If you have unfulfilled needs for your own use case for SLED, SLES, SLE-WE,
we can also discuss this privately via beta-programs at lists.suse.com.

Last but not least, it is true that all SLE products have the same code base,
but the devil is in the details, they do not have the same use cases, nor used
with the same hardware (GPU, display, etc) and they also bring their own
packages which are not present in other SLE products.
That’s the general reason why SLED and SLES have different support policy.
