That question assumes that there is a single workflow that people all 
use, and has given rise to a lot of needless angst when I've asked this 
question in the past.

Work flows will range from people who use Scribus purely as a layout 
tool to set something they've already prepared and checked, through to 
people like me who might produce an engineering report my making a 
storyboard of diagrams and photos in Scribus, then annotating them, 
dynamically adding text and adjusting layout as the job progresses.

For those of us that tend to the second approach, a spelling checker 
would be really useful !
