He suggested applying for a larger credit limit than you ordinarily might due to this. I hadn't seen this mentioned, so I suppose we'll see if this is indeed the case.
This is not completely true. When I applied it, I could control how much CLs I want the AU to have, up to the entire CL. For example, if my CL is $30k, I can let AU to have CL from anything up to $30k. No change to my own CL.

This is the same way how AmEx lets you control AU CL.
