Are there times when using these are considered good practice or would good architecture always provide an alternate solution (such as passing the variable into the function)?
I do not use them. Most often I use a framework, and that framework is usually CakePHP. For kicks, I just did a grep on all the CakePHP libraries and came up empty handed, which means, that even a large open source project like CakePHP does not even use them. Just some data.
