The problem with Scapple is that it is neither fish nor fowl. It appears to have been written to help one specific person with a specific task, and it was so cool somebody said, "Let's SELL this bad boy!" I think the L&L people need to sit down and think about what they want Scapple to be, then work towards getting there.

Scapple is free form , like a blackboard, and it has no import apart from drag and drop of text. It’s not an adjunct app in the way that it works together with Scrivener,
Scrivener is better at outlining than Scapple is, because an outline requires som structure and Scapple has no structure.

My preferred tools for this sort of thing are a white board and iThoughts. And I know of nothing that does a round trip the way I'd like it done.
