you need to definitely at least epoxy it to seal out water to prevent it from delaminating... not sure how long it would take to delam if you didnt seal it up, but i bet it wouldnt take that long depending on how often you ride it

Yeah, you def need to epoxy it. It would be cool if you had the piece but oh well. If you get it sealed all the way I would just live with it and I am sure it would be fine. Like you said throw a sticker over it etc...
