You do so at your own risk :)

But yes, it is possible and should work.  As you have noted, there are
some ties between the kernel and other parts of the system, like xorg
and alsa and some init issues, so you might run into a few problems.

That being said, it's exactly what I'm personally doing at the moment,
with no problems, but your system might be different.

If you have problems, please bring them up on the opensuse-kernel
mailing list and we will be glad to help you out.

good luck,
