Electrical Is there a reason the fuel pump circuit isn't fused?

Yep, I'm back with another dumb electrical question. See title. Is it because the inertia switch is part of the circuit? '93 5.0/AOD.
What I'm doing is integrating a Painless wiring harness into the factory Mustang engine control harness. The Painless fusebox has a provision for a 15a fuel pump fuse.
Can someone straighten this out for me? Thanks!

The fuel pump power circuit passes through a 18ga fusible link. It's in the bundle of links off the big think yellow wire off the starter relay

The inertia switch is not part of the circuit.

Roger that. Thank you!
I also noticed the Painless fusebox has a 30a fuse for the coil. I assume that's for a regular coil, not an E-coil like the Mustang has? I noted a fusible link in the Mustangs rd/grn wire that runs from the coil. That must be the circuit protector for that line, correct?
