Not sure how well the parallelization aspect is documented, but multiple `@test` blocks per file [imply unique tests, under different labels](https://github.com/openjdk/jtreg/blob/4d06ab3158fc61a34c3b897fa68bab14dca7a438/src/share/doc/javatest/regtest/tag-spec.html#L169-L173), which by extension means they can execute in parallel. We use this technique often in the OpenJDK tests :)
