It's difficult to talk about trends with regards to printing industry
which tends to be quite conservative.

If you tell Scribus guys "My printer demands TIFF" they will most
likely reply "Then you bloody well find another printer". Except there
can be no other printer. Just two weeks ago I've heard from two
different people: for the first guy there was no printer in his area
to do color trapping on-site, so they asked him to do it himself, and
no free DTP software supports it; for the second guy the printer
demanded CDR (native Corel files) instead of PDF.

Point of fact: a really good application should be implying the least
dangerous workflow (which is definitely PDF based) while supporting
all kinds of perversions.
