Whilst you can mist a pad if you want, I suspect there are very few polishes which have to be sprayed with water or a QD

Only if the polish dusts like crazy is it good to spritz a bit of water or QD on the pad to water it down a bit causing less dust for a few passses.

Stay away from qd's when polishing, most contain polymers and they are designed to flash off to leave a crisp finish. This works against you when you want a product to keep lubricating
Water can be used to isolate abrasives with certain products and increase product cut, but the reality is its 2017 and if its lubrication you are needing/wanting newer products just simply don't require it. If you need a wetting agent (that isn't water by the way) use a dedicated pad prime or something like the new spray from detailing kingdom to reduce the effects of sticky paint
