Call me a sissy if you want but when I do condition inspection I disconnect any un-protected wires from the battery for safety sake.
A contactor or fuse close to the battery is the only way to protect wiring.

In case of an imminent forced landing, all electrical power should be shut off as close to the source (battery) as possible. An accident investigator once made the comment that if the battery is thrown clear of the wreckage, fire is not as likely.
