Not directly. There is a well documented howto for writing text 
importers for Scribus. You can also customize text import with 
regular expressions and tags.

Correction: Scribus files are XML-based. A semantic difference, but 
true. See: http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=111

One thing to keep in mind, the current format exists first and 
foremost to serve the needs of Scribus as a graphical page layout 

Any secondary usage with external tools is a bonus and honestly not a 
high priorty for the devel team at the moment. It will get done 
eventually, but other issues have a higher priority.

Hope that helps to clarify things.
