Can you remind me of the advantages of NOT interpreting as "object form"
as "any form other than the preferred form for modification"?

This simple approach appeals to me, not least because it makes the GNU
GPL more easily applicable to things that aren't software:

source form = preferred form for modification of the Work
object form = any other form of the Work
