It's not precise info. The back to my mac feature is enabled by entering your MobileMe credentials. The access point will log in ITSELF, by having the tunnel open from the router/access point it is less prone to be filtered, or dropping. Also, from the Airport utility, you can now remote manage your Airport device without enabling remote management over WAN, opening SSH and exposing yourself to the world. It's the only improvement I saw.
