No, but to stick to stable versions.

And not to upgrade in the middle of a project unless you are prepared
to check and correct any changes to the layout.

RC5 as well as RC6 are release candidates. They may have bugs. Bugs
may be fixed between release candidates. Fixed bugs may affect the
layout. So may new features.

And of course, if you are forced to downgrade, you can always ask for
a refund... wait? Is Scribus free? Oh, sorry...

Scribus even is open source, so if you want a RC6 with the bugs of RC5
you always hade the possibility to have someone to put the bugs back
into the code and compile your own buggy version. But I'm not sure you
will find anyone who would do it for free.
