(That should be “preferred form of the work for modifying it”. I don't
know what “form of modification” would be.)

Indeed. Any transformation – minification, obfuscation, compilation,
encryption, etc. – which makes a form of the work which is not the
preferred form of the work for modifying that work, thereby makes a
non-source form of the work.

So the distinction being discussed is source versus non-source form of
the work.
