Seems like it.  Running the regression tests for file_fdw under
force_parallel_mode=regress, max_parallel_degree>0 passes; you can
verify that's actually doing something by using
force_parallel_mode=on, which will result in some predictable
failures.  From a theoretical point of view, there's no reason I can
see why reading a file shouldn't work just as well from a parallel
worker as from the leader.  They both have the same view of the
filesystem, and in neither case are we trying to write any data; we're
just trying to read it.

Committed these patches after revising the comment you wrote and
adding documentation.
