Only Wrong When Brandeis Does It (a continuing series)

In today's New York Times, Carol Vogel reports that, to finance some repairs, Kenwood House in North London is "taking a page from American museums" and "will raise money by lending parts of [its] collections to other institutions."  Each borrowing museum "will pay Kenwood an undisclosed loan fee and cover the cost of insuring the art and preparing it for travel."

She meant to say rental fee for renting parts of the collection, right Hall Monitors?  Or is that only important to insist upon when we're talking about Brandeis and the Rose?  I just want to get the rules straight.
