Agreed, Galahad. The many accelerator cards that came out for the A1200 also came with lots of RAM as an integral part of the upgrade, and since the A1200 came with 2Mb of Chip RAM as standard AND it was the maximum the AGA chipset could use, then that was Chip RAM sorted for good and all the cards had to do was to provide Fast RAM. Result? Sorted!

It's also true that it was third-party vendors who provided these expansions, and what a good idea that was as well, it got many manufacturers of computer hardware to become familiar with Amiga tech and even expand upon it. Quite a wise move of Commodore to allow this, as Apple would never do.
