Nice catch.

I renamed the .ai test files to .pdf and of course they opened just fine
in Adobe Reader and Evince.
I then opened one of my .svgs from Inkscape & exported it to .pdf.
Reopened the svg/pdf in Inkscape and I can edit etc. I then renamed that
.pdf to .ai and it opens in Inkscape w/o issue & I can edit. I can't
test w/AI as I do not have it.
