Please keep Scribus as light as possible ! It's already quite heavy to use it.
Sticky note workaround for me is creating a layer "comments" and placing text on it, not printable and viewable when needed.
Don't mess up with things that charges the initial goal of the software, please.

I know that this feature is typical for office program but it is very useful for me.

What about plug-in? Someone who need this feature could load plug-in with this functionality...

Why don't you try my suggestion : create a new layer named "sticky note" that you can enable or disable to view or not/ print or not. There you can add comments, drawings, objects, anything that makes it much more powerful than sticky note and placed anywhere you want on or besides the paper sheet. And if you like it, you may even choose a yellow background for your text notes ;)
I don't know what a plug-in could do more powerful.

I tried it. It is possible to do this way but it is horribly slow. I must setup position sticky note and its size manually.

When the sticky note would be in program I could only add sticky note to some object and size and its position be hold automatically.

I like this idea as a plugin. Exampled an editorial team giving feedback or correcting spelling mistakes without changing the text because it could shift the layout. Sticky notes would be a way to bring attention to typesetter etc...
