Is there a need limit users in which target to use (or not not) for 
their shared Storage ?
Adding SCST is not going to end up with 10 more targets to support, as 
there simply are not so many iscsi target implementations available.

PVE supports Comstar and istgt, where also no Linux packages are available.

Technical aspects/personal preference aside, SCST is not an uncommon 
target, so it's worth to at least consider adding it.
There is also ESOS (http://www.esos-project.com/) what is basically SCST 
(and ZFS if built with it) that is very stable and really painless to 
setup and maintain.
