You are absolutely right on this point. But you have to consider that 
Scribus is some kind of "moving target". Things are changing constantly. 
But of course it is true that for testing at least some basic 
instructions are necessary. Some of them can already be found on the 
Wiki, and Craig Bradney announced there are more to come.
