I don't know how to automate it better. If the buffer doesn't belong to

I thought this prompt will not be supported anymore.  If we are
keeping it as fallback when the current buffer doesn't specify which
tags table to use, then I'm okay with that.

For now it's clearly supported with the default value of etags-regen-mode (which is 'off'). Or if you 'M-x visit-tags-table' before having one auto-generated.

Having them work together would be better, I guess, but what should we do exactly?

Would we prompt for the tags table just once upon encountering a project-less buffer, and then use it for all such buffers in the current session?
