An IRAM should protect against an INIT 3 and is where the JPC ROM manual suggests putting the file if not in an EPROM.

I know that, and you know that, but the 71B doesn't always know that...

Key word here is 'should'. I suspect the IRAM contents will survive an INIT 3 every time; it's just the real genuine crashing-style MEM LOST conditions that can trash the IRAM contents. Still if there is no room in the EPROM, I surely agree it's better to put ML into an IRAM and hope it survives.
