Actually many car manufactures did and do just that in the wiring harnesses or on and under the relay boards sometimes at battery/ starter connection They started that in the 70's before that they just let you wait till the car caught on fire or if you were lucky a diode plate or stator wire melted open in the alternater opening the ground path first .
GM and others AMC/Jeep and Ford usually did a similar thing bit at the external starter sol. for years GM had the alt batt wire connect at the batt/starter terminal with a short link of fuse link at the starter then up to the alt harness. The Japanese usually pit there fuse links on the relay board until they started using main fuses . It used to be common to diagnose and open circuit by pulling on the fuse link wire if you knew where it was and if
stretched easily like taffy you knew the wire was open inside .
