I see adding a lithium in parallel as doing nothing but good. While it's plugged in the 12v lead acid will cause a constant small drain on it, turning some number of watts into heat. If you try this I'd be highly interested in what kind of current you see coming out of the lithium to float the lead acid battery at ~14.5v.
