Where there is a will, there is a way. No doubt there are some who would 
be willing to try something new, and this can be an infectious process 
once it gets started. All they would really need to know for this 
purpose is how to load a Scribus document, how to add an annotation -- 
either PDF annotation or a text frame somewhere. That's  not so 
difficult, probably easier than learning Word. This may be more of a 
perceived barrier than a real one.

As far as contaminating your .sla, you would be a fool to give them 
anything other than a copy, named differently so you can tell the 
difference. You can even name them differently for different recipients, 
if it's worth the bother.
