PS isn't supposed to be human readable. Scribus needs to position every
character on its own to achieve maximum output fidelity. There also might
be problems with reencodings if the fonts were embedded (not speaking
about subsetting, that even converts the text to vector outlines).

Sorry, that will not be possible at the moment. There's mailmerge
(and more) on the roadmap for Scribus 1.4, but I can't say when we are 
going to tackle that.
