Someone may correct my on this, but my understanding of the current 
implementation of PDF forms in Scribus is that the data cannot be 
separated from the form, so the use would be to fill out the form, then 
print it to make use of the feature.
There is interest, of course, in being able to save form data, but right 
now Adobe is holding on tight to the capability to do that, using only 
its own licensed software.
