As I understand it, Scribus is not a pixel editor, it is
a page layout package, rather a different thing altogether.

So you're saying that Scribus should add a pixel editing
package to their application, so that they can support CMYK
and other non-RGB color spaces, duplicating an awful lot
of what's in GIMP ?

I really don't think people working in the graphic
arts are going to want to master two different pixel editing
packages, simply because one of them doesn't support anything
other than RGB. If they're in the Linux sphere, then I guess
they need to go and look at using Krita instead.

[ ie. handling CMYK and other colorspaces is a superset
  capability, with RGB being a subset, and the colorspace is orthogonal
  to the pixel manipulation capabilities ]
