Since the third-party stuff is already integrated into LibreOffice, it doesn't matter whether it

Yes, the thirdparty stuff by itself doesn't matter, but as I also
wrote: What matters is the code that hooks up this thirdparty.

What I think is more important is the opportunity the bits that will be under AFL 2.0 provide to 
The Document Foundation if it is desired to re-license as other than LGPL3+.

What you also miss is the second point I mentioned, namely what
version will that codebase be?
There is no point in having a 3-4 year old codebase. That would be
useless to TDF/LO (useless to the whole community IMHO - but as it is
nowhere stated what the agreement covers..)
