Wiki with .txt export button
Step 1. Export text (save file)
Step 2. Import text into Scribus

Wiki without .txt export button
Step 1. Select and Copy text
Step 2. Paste into Kedit or Emacs or... even OO.org
Step 3. Save file
Step 4. Import text into Scribus

But anyway, you're right, it could be done the way you describe. I 
think the most interesting part of the process is the collaborative 
work the wiki allows. The rest is really up to the users. Going from 
wiki to Scribus is straightforward though.
