When the AUG was designed it was actually made to fully contain a 2x worst case scenario. In the last 4 decades I have never heard or seen a single example of an AUG coming apart (including mil and leo), not saying one hasn't, but I would love to see one if it did.

And looking at the design & construction, if I had to have a rifle come apart... I would choose it in the AUG any day over an AR platform.

Also, I do like being able to roll the rifle and look in the chamber without changing position or unshouldering. That’s quite a bit more difficult with a bullpup since the chamber is under your strongside eye.
The chamber is actually well forward of the shooters eye.
I can see the bolt and its position without even moving, roll the rifle about 10deg and I can see the entire chamber mouth.
