This, actually, is what I was thinking of. I do most of my writing in
Asciidoc and the asciidoctor processor outputs really nice epub3 (which
needs tweaking because I haven't studied the CSS files used by asciidoctor
[yet]). Of course, asciidoctor also can create PDF but the result is really
not well suited for printing.

Just because InDesign exports to epub3 doesn't mean Scribus should. I think
it would be much more useful to IMPORT epub3, and probably easier to code,
too, but "I am not a programmer."
