Sounds to me like you remembered it correctly.
Only thing you didn't mention was to not use GFI on single dedicated circuits used to power things like refs and freezers primarily for obvious reasons. Course the topic was lights.
When I built my shop in '05 the county had implemented laws requiring inspections of new construction. They required GFI circuits in the shop except as mentioned including the welder and 220 air compressor.....but those were separate special circuits also.
Well, as it turned out, in using the shop I am glad they are installed and over the 8 years I have had it they have only tripped accidentally a few times. I'll take it.
