I don't see it that way. I think that pure text deserves as much attention  
to layout and detail as does anything else. Most Word processors I have  
seen just don't cut the mustard when it comes to being able to carefully  
ensure that your textual formatting is correct. The nicest I have seen  
here is TeX. Scribus does a good job, and is better than the word  
processors. I don't like the idea of forcing Scribus to do everything, but  
this is something that Scribus should do well, and I think it does. Spell  
checking and other things can be done before your import your text into  
the document for layout.
