--- Comment #1 from orcmid <orc...@apache.org> ---
The password protection against editing does not employ encryption.

Only the password protection against opening employs encryption (so the
document is not readable without the password).

The protection against editing alone is a weak protection and apparently
Inkscape overcame it without difficulty.  

There is a similar situation when OpenOffice saves documents as other than PDF.
 If a document is readable, it is possible to overcome any password protections
on editing by manipulation of the document file.  That protection is mainly
against accidental modifications, not malicious alterations.
