I have grappled with that issue precisely for a current project. I was informed that global terms was not properly implemented and was in effect deprecated.

I ended up implementing replication of categories across the sites on category save/delete, which would be a horribly slow operation with more than about 10 sites, but which was an acceptable compromise for this project.

MU Sitewide tags doesn't really address this issue, though people suggest it as an option. You have to use it's entire multiblog post thing too, whereas I was applying a category to a single-sited custom post type.

It seems like a good thing to have as part of core, I didn't want to go down the road of modifying core of course.
