Interesting, I hadn't seen that before. Maybe I can look at/borrow some of
their implementation for referencing XML files, adapted to Scribus's

Of course, there doesn't seem to be anything about structured layout styles
there*, which is the main thing I'd be adding both in Scribus and in any
text importer, to recognize and apply layout styles.

* at least not available for editing from the GUI, I wonder how much their
DocBook importer handles creating sidebars and all....
