If you are happy with the appearance there is no reason to do anything else to the table. If you wish to do further work, this time of year it would be best to wait a month before doing anything to the finish. If you desire a hand rubbed finish you could wet sand the finish with 1800 to 2000 grit sandpaper and bring the gloss sheen back with rubbing compound. I use 3m rubbing compound like you would use on a cars finish.

A note on your line 4, the polyurethane finish is a better finish than any of the finishes you have listed so you would degrade the project by using any of them especially the lacquer. Lacquer has such strong solvents in it that it may lift the polyurethane finish if applied over. Never put a lacquer product over a polyurethane.
