I think there is lot of useless stuff in the image (applications) that could be left behind.

OpenSUSE doesn't use yum but zypper (superior IMHO), anyway the repository structure is the same.

Quite the opposite - SUSE Studio together with OpenSUSE Build Service (OBS) is the ideal solution here.
OBS builds the packages for you and then puts them in an OBS repository. All is included. When creating the SUSE Studio image, you can add your OBS repo to it and all the packages it contains. Every time the image is built, it contains the latest versions of your packages.
