I would have to say 250-2(d) would be my best answer...
(d) Performance of Fault Current Path. The fault current path SHALL BE permanent and electrically continuous, shall be capable of safely carrying the maximum fault likely to be imposed on it, and shall have sufficiently low impedance to facilitate the operation of overcurrent devices under fault conditions....
My opinion is with a fuse it cant be permanent..and most certainly will not be continuous....if the fuse happen to blow or fail...
BTW...I only had my 1999 NEC with me today...lol....VA is still in the 1999 and I had a class to teach earlier to I had it with me at the office here.
But of all the ones I have seen...
