True... but i see a couple of tablets in my close surrounding and relatives
and no working small laptop.

The interest is to use the available computing power.

External text could be fed into some static layout ?

It could be of real interest but i imagine also how frustrating it would be
to meet static layout constraints in the more general case.

Maybe some masonery type layout dynamic could do the trick
(as can be tested on https://masonry.desandro.com/layout.html :
change your window size and layout adapts)
except with such a constrained scribus app, not the window should change size,
but each content block, and the layout should adapt.
