I can see some advantages of a print shop supporing native files: if you
are an unexpierenced in DTP (like me), you can simply choose "File >
Collect for Output..." within Scribus and deliver to the print shop the
whole directory including fonts and images (memory doesn't cost much
nowadays), and you don't have to worry about which options to use while
exporting to PDF.
