The only thing I can think of at the moment is to make use of folders 
that will act as suitcases and load them as needed through the Font 
Manager dialog > Additionnal Paths ...
Not perfect as you can understand ... but to a certain extent, 
manageable ... I think.
I didn't "work" enough with Scribus to simulate real life production 
but I find the Additionnal Path to be helpful.
So, basically, you can do the following:
* Throw away garbage fonts.
* Put together a few font folders, sorted according to your needs.
* Activate your fonts before opening any file in Scribus (otherwise, 
the Add Path tab will be greyed)
