If you read the entire article in the link (and not just the bullet points, which were my thoughts on how you could connect the grounded realism of TDKT with the world of MOS) you'll see that I'm just making the same essential point that shauner is, mainly that the current rumors seem to suggest that the Nolanverse was meant to be a launching pad for the DCU. And more than just creatively but from a marketing and branding standpoint as well.
The argument against that is that Nolan was himself involved with MoS and had been explicit from day one that his Batman was in it's own universe.
