Um ... why is it a good idea to attach a parallel-safe annotation to an
aggregate as such, rather than relying on the parallel-safe annotations
of its implementation functions?

This seems not entirely academic, since perhaps the functions are not
all marked the same; which might be sensible.  Perhaps the transition
function can be pushed down but not the final function.
