SVG added as GraphicObject using svgio can also be edited - that's why 
there is a 'break' command in the context menu for this objects. Not 
sure if this command is available in all Apps from the UI perspective 
(the core can always break SVGs), but you may try in draw/impress. 
Breaking creates all SdrObjects needed to represent the SVG.
