Does that mean that if I print on paper that is not microporous, (say, regular printer paper), more of the pigment will fall off once dry? If I handle the pictures once in a while, is it likely that considerable amount of the dye will be worn off or fall off the surface in, say 100 years?

What do you mean by regular printer paper? All inkjet paper today has the microporous coating on it. If it's not made for inkjet printing then it has no coating and the print will look washed out, dull and unsharp and the ink may rub off (but it won't just fall off).
