Not sure: Technically, for example, you can modify a program in any
possible way just by having access to the assembler code that the
compiler generates out of the closed sources, but this would be far too
difficult to be realistic. That is why specifically the "preferred form"
has to be available. But a clearer definition would be great, of course.
