IMO, layout advantage vs text processing is that you can place frames where you want. i could send you plenty of documents where captions are not close to the photo.

Plus even in that case, it might be on the left, on the right, below, above... How do you differenciate a caption frame compare to any other frame that would be close to the picture (title on image...).
There will be lots of use cases.
But i agree we have to find the basic case to be implemented. Otherwise i'm not opposed to have some specific properties that would be set in scribus (for example with attributes) that could help improving export to have as less effort to do afterwards.

For example how will calibre deal with page numbers, footnotes, image captions... there many cases where a conversion tool can not understand the layout, especially when it is done from PDF which is not semantic.
How can the export recognize that some specific text is the legend of that other specific image frame ?
Just because it's closely placed in the PDF ?
Doesnt'it requires adding some semantic data, for example defining the attributes that scribus enables to define for 
frames ?
