Dear Arlo,

it is not for me to say what is "proper" and what is "improper".

All I was suggesting was that the F in IFP has the same meaning as the F 
in EFEO and that the treasures preserved in Pondicherry (and recognized 
by the UNESCO as "Memory of the World") have been collected and 
preserved thanks to the joint actions of many researchers, all financed 
by the French tax-payers, whatever the channel through which the money went.

Le futur a ses racines dans le passé
et quiconque crée une bibliothèque
souhaite que les générations suivantes puissent y avoir accès
et soient capables de lire les livres qu'elle contient.

Un philologue ne se dit pas "après moi le déluge"

Amitiés

-- Jean-Luc

P.S. je pense que tu dois avoir accès au rapport (vert) [pour le 
soixante-quinzième anniversaire de l'EFEO] à la bibliothèque de l'EFEO.
