I think if we consider the point-of-view this sub-thread was coming 
from, you are talking about creating a lot more complexity and warnings 
where less complexity and warnings were desired.

Certainly, if someone wants to fork Scribus into a Scribus-For-Dummies 
version, I say, go for it! Otherwise I think we want to promote 
professionalism and knowing your content and paying attention to the 
array of information that Scribus has at your disposal.
