Scribus 1.2.x does not have RGB print profiles, but it is already on 
the roadmap for 1.3.X

RGB (mostly inkjet) printers have a different role. They are ideal for 
high end photographic prints, as well as more common desktop usage.

IMO, CMYK conversions are years from disappearing. Only the newest 
most advanced commercial printing systems support PDF/X-3 and even 
then the operator needs to be aware of the capabilities.
