I can seldom agree.
One of the merit of GLOBAL is the ability to locate the database by itself.
If you are in a project, global(1) locates the database instead of you.
The greatest weak point of this method was having to make tag files
in the project. But it was solved by 'obj' directory.
Now, use of GTAGSROOT and GTAGSDBPATH is not recommended.
So, I can seldom approve of the --dbpath option.
