Default Calorie-covered Cardio

I'm wondering if there is any opinion on doing additional cardio, even on a bulk, that is "calorie-covered?" By this I mean that a cardio session is intentionally inserted once or twice a week but is accompanied by additional calorie intake that roughly matches the calorie output of the cardio.

It has been my experience that cardio has potential to be a muscle waster if I'm not careful. Of course, I never did calorie covered cardio. I can see some potentially serious advantages:

1. Improved heart conditioning (stronger workouts, especially legs and back)
2. Improved blood flow
3. Better health - man, what a concept!

Has this already been settled by grand-unified bodybuilding debates?
