Arcane Chaos Tunneling breaks the spellcasting rule of bonus action spells unless I missed something. You can't cast a bonus action spell if you have already cast a spell.

A spell cast with a bonus action is especially swift. You must use a bonus action on your turn to cast the spell, provided that you haven't already taken a bonus action this turn. You can't cast another spell during the same turn, except for a cantrip with a casting time of 1 action.

Yes, it does. In this case though, if the spell is a cantrip it'll just get spammed as most spellcasters aren't using their bonus action a ton while casting (there are exceptions) and if it's an action setting up the next turn, the benefit is not sufficient to give up a turn. So it's set up like a smite spell, to pair with an action in the same turn. If you only want to allow this with attack cantrip per RAW, that makes sense as well.

One could also argue that this falls under the "Specific beats general" principle that can be found on page seven of the player's handbook. Here the specific ruling would allow you to cast multiple spells in one turn, although having the specification of limiting spell use after this spell would be useful to avoid breaking the action economy further.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
