Aha, and there is an LSI profile, somewhere?

Might I suggest, (to the Scribus dev team), that this is, (and things like this
are), made a little clearer in the dialogue box/es?  Perhaps a small note to
this effect, near the text eg; 

    "Output Intent (not embedded in PDF)"

or a tooltip of some kind?

This doesn't explain why the exported PDF was rejected by LSI, but it does
immensely help my understanding of the options in the preferences dialogue.
Thanks Peter!
