Hey, Billy ... you've really "got one on ye" this morning, Mate!
Anyway, we've had the discussion about fuse ratings before, and the Elders decided that 10 A for all standard IEC leads was the way to go (haven't you been paying attention, either?).
Also, if you don't like the idea of nurses squirreling away "spare" cables, why not simply take them away when you find them? Of (if you prefer), just cut the plugs off?
