Pavers over concrete: Should I seal the concrete first?

I plan to install pavers over concrete and I wanted to know if I should seal the concrete slab first... is it worthwhile or am I just wasting time. The slab is in good condition, but ~20 yrs old and without recent treatment.

So I realize that I COULD, I ask whether I SHOULD...

What kind/type of "pavers" and what is the material and size(length, width and thickness)? - The term "pavers" can be very nebulous.

Installation methods vary considerably. For some types of pavers a sand setting cushion is all that is needed and there is no need for a sealer.
