I daresay a Humakti could make this substitution. Of course
this would mean that as a traditionalist, he is now implicitly
accepting Teelo Norri as a healer, while traditionalists do
not. Ergo, he's halfway on the path to Illumination or
Lunar-symping. That's in addition to the immense propoganda
value such an atrocity would give the Lunars as many of the
patients are likely to be locals.

I think it's only attuned towards the Humakti who performed
the actual quest very much. A Lead Cross in the hands of
somebody else will not function unless he also chops some
healers into bits.
