Theory: Szeth's oathstone is a dawnshard

There has been some specalation as to whether Szeth is physically bound to do as he is commanded or is just does so out of honor/religious obligation.
I think that not only is he physically bound, his "oathstone" is a legendary dawnshard.
The only evidence I have is this quote

“Taking the Dawnshard, known to bind any creature voidish or mortal, he crawled up the steps crafted for Heralds, ten strides tall apiece, toward the grand temple above.”

— From the Poem of Ista. I have found no modern explanation of what these "Dawnshards" are. They seem ignored by scholars, though talk of them was obviously prevalent among those recording the early mythologies


But it seems to make sense. Your thoughts?

In the chapter "CHILD OF TANAVAST" Szeth is mentioned seen (well, I assume it's Szeth - long thing Shardblade, Shin, white clothing)... Not the best evidence. Szeth is mentioned 2-3 paragraphs before Tanavast...

Soon after he sees Szeth, the voice says this:

"Child of Honor. Child of one long since departed."

"The Ooathpact was shattered."

Im still looking...
