It probably was there. But now Scribus has matured enough it doesn't 
need these references. In fact one might argue that Scribus is well on 
the way to becoming more "famous" than any of these.  How many of these 
high school/middle school students we hear about have even heard of DTP 
before Scribus?
I don't think we would see Adobe saying that their products are "like" 
anyone else's.
