Interesting thread. I believe the purpose of a breaker is to protect the wire, not the load. Individual fuses, or sub-panels, can protect the device. There are a lot of nice ATC (automotive type) fuse blocks available and they come in sizes from 1A to 30A and are available worldwide. I have very few of the old glass fuses on my boat.
