Yes if you have big experience in print house and densitometer in you eyes and

1. it has colours extending CMYK spectrum
2. it has colour definitions for separate additional colours in printing (eg 
CMYK + some Pantone)

Yes, I agree with you in 100% at this point.
Inkscape -> eps files -> Scribus -> pdf file
