GFCI in basement bathroom...

I was over at a friends house and we got to talking a bit about the basement project... concerning wiring of his Bathroom GFCI, and his kitchenette. He had wired the kitchen outlets with 20A GFCI and only had 3 0r 4 outlets there, but then through the wall to the bathroom gfci.....

Is this an accepted way to do things? All outlets are GFCI protected, but I thought bathroom groups had to be with bathroom groups....

by code there must be 2 20a GFI circuits in the kitchen and 1 20a GFI circuit in a bathroom that can not leave the bathroom(some exceptions)

Please follow the code - its there for your safety no matter how inconvenient.
