All this feature does is to allow margins to be set as "inside" and
"outside" as opposed to "left" and "right" of page, along with the
opportunity to allow graphic elements to span across the double page. In
other words, if you plan to have "facing" values for margins, you could use
this feature. And if you plan to have a graph or any graphic element going
across a spread, the yes, use this feature.

However, please note that Scribus is not able to "print as spread".
