You can edit PDF files with Adobe Acrobat too. They don't need to by
hybrid documents.

I think this is very dodgy and also requires proprietary software to do
the editing. I don't know of any DFSG software that will do the same thing.

However it is possible.

Is there any requirement that says the source code must be editable in a
sane manner (e.g. editing a PDF file with a binary hex editor would not
be sane) with entirely DFSG compliant tools?
