Sorry for not answering your question, but if oldstyle numbers are so important to you, I'll suggest a free high-quality font (note: only regular is free) which does contain oldstyle numbers (and which are active by default, meaning you don't have to do search-replace in Scribus): it's exljbris's Calluna: http://www.exljbris.com/calluna.html

Some type foundries like exljbris and TypeTogether usually set oldstyle as default numbers, which makes life so much easier when working in Scribus and other apps which cannot (yet) automatically switch between oldstyle and lining numbers.
