Add the ability to set a cost limit on an account/org

It would be extremely useful to be able to set a limit on an org or account (or space) in terms of billing. That way I can assign developers to orgs/spaces and give them cost quotas and not have to proactively monitor it constantly to check that they aren't running up vast costs.

    How do I tag a customer name for this?  Lincoln Financial Group asked for it.

    The "other" clouds have a form of budget / limit setting. As a business partner who tests things on the platform not necessarily billable it would be annoying to have to pay for a service I "forgot" to stop.

     customers and particularly startups ask for this all the time (since it was first mentioned in the earliest stages of Atlas), in some cases having been prompted by the competition.

    Hi, I see this AHA idea has been accepted. Is this part of the roadmap already, and when will it be delivered?

    Having a hard limit on Account, Organization and Space level is extremely critical and useful feature in managing the Bluemix account in large enterprises.
