Yeah, plan to end things where the last tile will cover the joint - the tile will adhere to drywall with thinset fine. When taping the seams with the cbu, you aren't trying to make the joints invisible like you are with drywall, it is strictly for strength and it doesn't make any difference if you do it first or do it while tiling. In fact, it is often easier to do it while tiling, then you won't have any humps or speedbumps of dried thinset to try to get to tile over. Drywall is a lot cheaper, and comes in bigger panels for fewer joints, so use it in all of the dry areas.
