Yes, of course it is. but Scribus was not initially designed for that
purpose. I agree that it would be nice if Scribus could do this, but the
development resources are limited and since there are other programs (for
example Open Office, LyX, pdfTeX etc) available and a PDF can be reduced by
external means my personal opinion is that there are other issues that are
more important. For example support for complex scripts and RTL languages,
better tables, better support for cross references and automatic numbering
and a lot of similar stuff.

That option is badly named, the options should be:

RGB file (screen/web)
CMYK file (print)
Grayscale file
