Scribus' format is XMLish already, so I hope this kind of thing is not 
too hard :)

However, I feel that it would make more sense to have a equation editor 
that writes out MathML, or an illustration editor that writes out SVG, 
and for Scribus to simply import/embed these formats. Perhaps tweaking 
them is a scribus user's job, and worth having an interface to, but 
such 'separation of concerns' is important to reduce duplicated 
programming effort, imo :)

...unless an emacs-style ScribusOS is at the end of the roadmap, ahah ;)
