As I understand the docs, Scribus does not fully understand all Inkscape 
specific SVG code; thus "True SVG" should be more standard.

Ever reoccurring issue in DTP: convert text to outlines before/while exporting 
images in any vector format. Font handling is so dependent on OS, desktop 
environment and even individual computers (installed fonts, software and 
patches). Expect problems and unpolite language if you ever send non-outlined 
fonts in such documents (.ai, .eps, .ps, etc) to most printshops. :-)

Good luck,
