Mostly correct -- it's opertions that modify the RCS files in the
repository that are dangerous: commit, tag, admin, import, etc.  Add
does not modify RCS files, nor does checkout, update, etc.  However,
since CVS remembers the CVSROOT used for the initial checkout and uses
that saved CVSROOT for all subsequent CVS operations (unless explicitly
overridden), it's quite inconvenient to use different CVSROOTs for
different operations.

I don't recall it being mentioned in the manual -- you must have seen it
somewhere else.
