Black is the default in TeX. For CMYK use \Black is also defined in the 
pdfcolor.tex file. There is no complexity here. If you switch colors
then you have to switch back to \Black if you want to go back to black.
This will hold in the Scribus render TeX function also, except the
LaTeX tags will have to be used.
