If you just wanted to use the Domino tenon for alignment, you could. Gluing isn't required per se. However, typically you would glue the tenon up. There are glue channels (ribbing) on the tenon which is made of solid beech.
The Domino has three settings for mortise width. At its tightest setting, I built a entryway cabinet that I posted on the forum here. I completely dry-fit assembled it with no glue at all. The tenons are tight enough to hold it together. That's not to say that you will probably want to clamp or screw it together while the glue dries to ensure no gaps.
If you're doing crown and base, you'll probably want to pick up the 4mm cutter and tenons which are designed for 1/2" material.
Remember that you can get one and try it out. If you don't like it, return it for a refund under our 30-day guarantee policy.
