Lower branch wires in main raceway

The main panel feeders are protected only by the downstream device.  The super-lag utility fuse situated upstream is too big to protect it.  If you consider a branch circuit conductor in the same conduit as those feeders, a failure in the respective branch circuit breaker could cascade into a feeder failure with violent and catastrophic results.
