I have recently made a book (300+ pg) this way and even if you 
carefully only use just a few styles, you will end up with about 10-20 
styles in Scribus. (1.3.9 on linux) But the bold and italics were 
imported correctly.
May way to go on was to create a char-styles for bold/italics and then 
after the import with an xml-Editor in the sla-File find and replace 
the direct formating with the char-style.
After that you through the text on the canvas an change in every 
paragraph the par-style to the desired.
If you use another color (temporarly) for the "right" styles it is 
easier to see.
I guess with the import from OO follow many (hidden?) styles which you 
don't see in Openoffice during edit (when switched to "Show only used 
styles"), thats maybe hard to fix
But what would be really helpfull if you can delete direct formatting 
execpt..... and this has to be selectable. Maybe there could even 
exist a "table" which direct formating should become which char-style.
