Seperate Users for teradata backups and Restores

I am looking for reasons about Teradata's Recomendation to have a seperate users for BACKUP and RESTORE. Can someone share some words (advantages/disadvantages) about heaving a seperate users for Teradata BACKUP and RESTORE activites.

Currently I am using DBC for all Backup nd restore activities, any comments about this practice.

Thanks.

The main reason is that the user used for backup or restore may be logged on only once, i.e. your ARC logon will fail when dbc is already logged on using a SQL session.
