In the end, I think Scribus is simply the wrong tool for that job.
What is really needed is something that works like Scribus -- setting up 
frames, importing images, placing things with some lower level of 
precision, but then creating an html file instead of PDF. Regardless of 
some way of "translating" Scribus positioning and other features, some 
kind of manual tweaking will be necessary.
