PDF keeps identifying as a bitmap

Because I like to experiment (and my daughter might like this for one of her cars), I played around with this.

Open in Gimp, fill areas you want to keep, widen the “bridges” to keep the whole thing from falling apart, import to Inkscape, “trace bitmap”, and you end up with this:

Skull and Flag Cutout

(my machine is tied up with an hour-long engrave or I’d show you what it looks like when cut…)

Forgot to add - the PDF file you uploaded does only contain a bitmap. PDF, like SVG, are “containers” that can contain vectors and rasters (bitmaps) - yours contains just a bitmap.
