You'll just be maintaining THAT...instead of the paint!!
Poly's suffer faster than actual paint because they're translucent.
PAINT is obviously completely opaque.
Even if you did use a Poly, you'd have to wait a MONTH for the paint to cure-out completely, before trapping it under coats of a Poly!!
You'll be creating more maintenance if you use it, and DOUBLING your workload....
