Fuse placement sounds reasonable.
If you use a switching regulator, they are usually self protecting against shorted outputs anyway.
I use these 5V, 7.5V, 12V supplies all the time. Might have a 9V too.
5V for no-regulator designs, 7.5V for logic level only Arduino's, 12V to power LED strips with TPIC6B595s to sink current.
