That's a question I've also asked myself. This would require a XSLT
Stylesheet FO->SLA. Did you ever compared the Scribus file format with
FO in detail?

Do you mean the transformation SLA->FO? I don't think this is possible
because you can do much more in Scribus than in FO.

As I wrote before, there are approaches to define adaptive layouts in
fo. So you wouldn't have to start from the scratch if you can adapt
something from fo.
