Is it possible to create area lights that use the parallel keyword? I.e. 
parallel lights with fuzzy shadows?

Absolutely. I, and others, often do and it work correctly.

Keep in mind that the area_light is evaluated from the actual position 
of the light, not «infinity», and set it up accordingly.
