Never tried it but perhaps you may be able to in Terminal or perhaps Note Pad may work, but just not sure.

Guess my question would be why not just edit in the phone. Perhaps I don't understand what your trying to do.

the edit thing would be a goodie...
my goal is just a hardreset and to keep nothing but the adressbook...
did you had the chance to give it a try?

does anybody has an idea how to edit the downloaded file?

have you tried anything like Notepad++? it might work because in regular notepad i can see scattered names, email addresses, phone numbers, ect. Its just that theres a lot of unrecognized cheracters that i bet the ++ could pick up
