Another thought;

+ else if (IsA(node, Aggref))
+ {
+ Aggref   *aggref = (Aggref *) node;
+ if (parallel_too_dangerous(func_parallel(aggref->aggfnoid), context))
+ return true;
+ }

Does this need to check the parallel flags on the transfn or serialfn?
these'll be executed on the worker process. Possibly we also need the
combinefn/deserialfn/finalfn to be checked too as I see that we do
generate_gather_paths() from set_append_rel_pathlist().
