I refer to the cover file which is in color. Previously I sent PDF
X/1-a:2001 CMYK files from Scribus 1.5.0. But now they will accept X-3
and RGB format cover files. I will be using the Adobe RGB icc
profile for the actual cover. But the "X-3 Rendering Intent" field
won't accept any of the RGB icc profiles. 

This question does not arise for the B/W  interior, only for the
color cover of the same book.
