No, I really don't think so.  If the matter were adjudicated in court,
the judge would attempt to determine the licensor's intent, evidenced
primarily by the licence wording.  (In the main, neither Prof. Moglen
nor Richard nor FSF is the licensor.)  And I believe the meaning of "any
third party" in this context is pretty obvious.
