Allomantic Seekers as Worldhoppers?

Question

Seekers normally can only sense active use of investiture, but this WoB says that if enough investiture is gathered together, then you can sense it

Questioner

Does bronze detect Investiture or only Allomancy?

Brandon Sanderson

Investiture. It can be used for other things. But like most detection methods, it doesn't look for wells of power, it looks for power that's being used, generally. You get enough power together, and bronze will be able to find it no matter what.

 Does this mean that a Seeker would be more likely to become a worldhopper, since they might be able to locate perpendicularities, similar to how Vin was able to sense the Well of Ascension Would they be able to traverse the cognitive realm more easily, since they might be able to sense the direction of a shardworld via the pulses that come from it?

It's plausible.
However, it has several limitations:
 1.-The distance can be hundreds or even thousands of kilometers to perpendicularity.
 2.-The previous limitation can be circumvented in only one way; burn duralumin (Mistborn or Hemalurgist), because given that if you could infinitely fan bronze (an impossible thing) you would need huge amounts of bronze.
