To each his own. My desktop color printer (HP Color Laser CP1518ni) has 
four cartridges, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and blacK. Clearly it will handle 
CMYK just fine. 

I do not see any difficulty in handling CMYK in Scribus. I use the Scribus 
Open Office Palette with custom additions as is helpful. To see what the 
end result is likely to look like I use the Galaxy Gauge Color Map Pro 
which shows over 1,000 CMYK swatches with their CMYK numbers, and lots of 
other useful information.

LSI insists on CMYK. If you give them RGB they will reprocess it to CMYK, 
rasterizing the file in the process. Then it will be rasterized again in 
prepress. Not good. 
360 Digital Books has a very modern iGen press, but their guidelines still 
specify CMYK. When I create items in RGB, as I did for my e-book listed 
below, and then later convert them to CMYK the deep blues come out as 
purple. So if print is the target CMYK is the safe choice.
