Who, if anyone, tapes over cracks in lime plaster ceilings prior to a skim of gypsum?

The ceiling plaster is well bonded to the lathe. The cracks are hairline, more or less.

- using paper tape
- using ova glue, or other.

Thanks,
John

I personally would prep that ceiling by removing any loose material and apply a coat of Unibond (mixed as stated on the can) before applying two-coat skim.
