They're talking about high-amperage circuit protection. Here's the reference to their primer.

The "80% rule" is described midway down and below.

Note that with regard to short-circuit protection, they say that "Precise sizing of short circuit protection is not critical," and that fuse ratings up to 150% of the wire rating may be used.
