A log structured file-system like nilfs as root file-system to use on SSDs.
Currently GRUB does not have support for those file-systems. So may be an option to have LILO for those configurations or add support for those in GRUB.

Another option would be to have a /boot partition(or disk) and allow the root partition(or disk) as nilfs(or btrfs). I guess this should require only YaST changes. No LILO support required.

No changes needed to YaST, I do the small (ext2 with 4k blocks & few inodes) via Custom Paritioning and then copy files to a "shared" /boot partition after an install.

lilo(8) is indeed not required.  So all this needs is support of nilfs in the kernel, expert partitioner and a nilfs-tools package analagous to reiserfs(8) (would have mentioned btrfs or ext4 but they seem to have funked the man pages).
