I can't tell how the YaST source looks like, didn't yet look really. But YaST 
isn't i386-only. SLES[1] is available for i386,x864_64,ppc64, s390, s390x too 
and SL for x86_64, too
And they also use YaST (looking on where which yast2 source version is used 
confirms this..)

That SL[2] isn't available for !i386/!x86_64 is an other story...
