Well, I don't like max_node_parallel_degree much.  We don't call it
max_node_work_mem.  And node is not exactly a term that's going to be
more familiar to the average PostgreSQL user than parallel degree is
to (apparently) the average PostgreSQL developer.  I think at some
point adding noise words hurts more than it helps, and you've just got
to ask people to RTFM if they really want to understand.
