“guix system init” is what I used to transform foreign distros into
GuixSD.  It does not need to be run on a GuixSD installer system.

I’d prefer not to strengthen the distinction at all (which would be a
side-effect of documenting it) and rather smoothen the bump between the
“full Guix system” and just “Guix on a foreign distro”.

“guix system vm” breaks the distinction: it is a full Guix system but
built on top of a foreign distro.  Using the term “Guix system” is
clearer for all but one case where the “guix system” commands are used.
