While I can see reasons to want this under certain conditions, when laying
out a print publication, such as a periodical, this would NOT be useful,
IMO.  I want complete control where the next frame will be placed AFTER I
have imported the text.  Unlike what was suggested for your use, I never
make multiple frames resembling the next page and want Scribus to just pick
up the next available frame for linking to the current frame.  I may have a
placeholder frame on a page that I do NOT want to be used by Scribus for the
current article overflow.  Again, useful to some, that concept doesn't allow
me the control over placement that I need.

The overriding concept here is that many of us use Scribus with varied
targets.  While mine is a print magazine, others are just trying to achieve
a web based pdf.  There is a world of difference between the tools and
techniques required for these two targets and the many in between.
