One related question I would like to add to have this clear when working with 
Scribus: does Scribus "respect" greyscale/black&white images, or do such 
images appear as RGB in the PDF, too? Because this could lead to brownish 
surprises in printed output, if for example a greyscale image gets 
transformed via RGB into CMYK. You would then have to give separate 
instructions on how to handle such images to the CtP-service.

Yours sincerely
