Inkscape uses the very same converter as Scribus. It's called
UniConvertor and only supports paths with flat fills and strokes (and
maybe bitmaps, but I'm not entirely sure). There has been no progress
re CDR support in UC in last few years (the primary developer is busy
rewriting things yet again), and unfortunately I don't see it changing
any time soon.

However there has been quite a bit of progress on reverse-engineering
CDR recently on the re-lab side recently, and hopefully things will
change now that there is libcdr by one of LibreOffice developers.
