What do you mean with scribus using "native css"? I don't think that css
is enough to describe the complexity of a scribus layout. And AFAIK a
simple import mechanism for html is already part of scribus.

That's true, but I don't think that this is enough for a publishing
workflow. The idea is that any change you made in Scribus is also
written back into the CMS, that content is locked if it is currently
edited in scribus etc. etc..

Maybe I just don't understand your proposal, so please explain your idea
in more detail...
