One thing we already have is this:
perhaps a bit outdated, but it is one place to request and discuss
improvements outside of the feature request method.
What is needed is not just any feedback, but well-thought out and
articulate comments, along with the rationale for these requests. It
also has the advantage as opposed to the mailing list of being less of a
moving target, so that these things can be found easily.
If some think that getting a wiki account serves as a "barrier", I would
suggest that more realistically it is a minor test (since wiki accounts
are quite easily obtained) of the users' desire to truly help Scribus
and not just snipe from the sidelines.
