Default fusible link ?

my 01 pt has bad battery cables and I am going to upgrade them to larger cables. I also wanted to upgrade the wire from the alternator to the battery terminal on the starter. I was looking at an online wiring diagram and it shows a fuseable link between the starter and alternator.my question is why would the fuse link be there? I thought it should be between the battery and distribution center. is the diagram I looked at wrong? and what would be the reason for having a fuse link there?

The fusible link is in the case of a grounding of that cable.
