Possibly. It does explain things. But I just can't quite accept it. Severian's realization that he and Agia are seen as ghosts is just too wonderfully creepy and disorienting to not contain truth.

Still, since Wolfe gave us clues pointing to the Moffats, we may be forced to assume that he also gave us clues that the missionaries are NOT the Moffats, and work from there.

I read it as a nod to _Childhood's End_

And I thought the missionaries are "modern day" individuals who are 
"chant-caught" reenactors.
