To perhaps clarify a bit, regarding, as you said, that "Whereas current practise is to rate fuses (including apparently identical glass fuses) by the rated current of the protected circuits, which might be approximately half the rupture current." If the rupture current is to be 35 amps, then you would want a 17 amp fuse (approx half the rupture current).
