Global catalog question

I've recently picked up a customer who is running a network at multiple locations through out the state. there are two DC's both in the same office and both set to be the Global Catalog. this is a flat schema enviroment and all the fsmo roles are located on one server. I've always had it where the server holding the infastructure role wasn't the GC. is there any particular reason to have to GC's a on a flat schema??

"In the event that there is only one domain in the forest, all domain controllers contain the same data, so there is no need to locate a GC (even though any given server might be designated a GC)."
