Idea for a Left Behind rework: allow to reopen a closed hatch

Left Behind currently is kind of a joke of a perk, and a rework is inevitable sooner or later, so I got this idea:

If you are the last Survivor remaining in the Trial, unlocks the ability to reopen the Hatch after it's been closed by the killer. Opening the hatch requires X seconds and during the action your aura is revealed to the killer in a range of Y meters, which increases up to Y2 meters as the interaction progresses.

The idea is that the perk would open an additional exit, but the time (I was thinking 20 seconds, like a gate, but I prefer to not give numbers) and the aura reading would both make sure it wouldn't be a safe one and one should be smart to use it. Also, it wouldn't serve (aka be abusable by) SWF at all but could be useful for solo survivors who struggle in the endgame.

I highly doubt it would become a meta perk, but still it could be a fun alternative to keys and be more useful than currently is.

    How about you bring/find a key? SV need what, 100 2nd chance perks?

    Why the aura? I would just use this to show the killer where I am to end the game faster. Oh wait, they would just slug me so that the timer takes 4 mins instead of 2...

    Or, gens could not be blocked at any point, and completing a gen would reopen the hatch, considering it's a significant indicator of where the last survivor is, making the EGC more interesting.
