I just wrote a long post, and lost it due to timing out. Rather than
try that again, I'll summarize here.

1. If Scribus used CSS natively and was network-aware (even if that
only meant calling wget), then the HTML import could pull in any
existing web page. That means we wouldn't have to invent a workflow at
all: any web-based workflow would already work.

2. Any CMS could give you a web form that could generate a templated
(or template-ready) webpage, by allowing any combination of menus,
fields, and text areas for both content and metadata.
