No, Spencer is completely wrong. "Sequor" is a deponent verb, that is
irregularly having passive forms for active meanings. "Sequitur" is the
third person singular INDICATIVE.
Rather than tie yourself into further knots on this subject about
substantive uses of the term and other irrelevancies, I suggest this
thread has had enough misinformation already.
You might care to reflect that Adam Murimuth, whose usage we are
discussing, was an Englishman, so that by your own curious idea the
advantage in getting at his thought processes from a native-speakers
point of view is perhaps not with you.
However, grammar is grammar and Latin grammar is not open to revision.
