As far as automotive there are three stages of rust, flash, the start of pitting and the scale.

Your theory is right but it is also wrong from stand point that scale hold air and moisture, so sealing from both sides will actually accelerate it, kinda same as a cancer cell that get air when you are cut open, goes on a mad rush to replace itself, kinda sorta anyway.

Flash rust is or can be painters best friend, if using epoxy, DTM 2K, acid etch, polyester will not stop it.
Hey Barry !

i kinda thought that might be the answer

(btw - what i asked is not what i am doing )
