 If they were both removable and modifiable (so not invariant), they would
be DFSG-free and nobody would have any reason to remove them.

 Even if they were removable but not modifiable, they would still not be
DFSG-free, so the only way to get a DFSG-free document would be to have them

 Well, in that case they'll make the document DFSG-nonfree. If they were
removable and modifiable the document would be DFSG-free (except for the DRM
clause, of course).

 So, to summarize:

 Removable and modifiable     -> Debian would most certainly carry them
 Removable but unmodifiable   -> Debian would remove them
 Unremovable and unmodifiable -> Debian would not carry the document at all
