Oil paints are not the thing to use. Even though the film thickness
and therefore the amount of medium (linseed oil) is minimal, you could
run into an archivability problem. <snip> Water colors are your best choice.
Your explanation of the oil-to-paper problem matches my understanding of it.
But P.H. Martin's Concentrated Water Colours are not lightfast -- they're
downright fugitive, even with the books closed.
Dr. Martin's Hydrus Fine Art Watercolor is billed as being lightfast, however.
