The manufacturers of these products will tell you that once cured new coats will not etch into the previous coat. True on can scratch it up with sandpaper but this is not an actual bond and can be chipped off with little effort. Shoes will do this rather nicely. I have shellac on my 100 year old floors that is holding up fine and is repairable and easily recoated. Poly floor coatings are expected to last 10 years, varnish will last forty years, do the math!
