My opinion is that there are many applications which are not specifically outlined in manufacturer data sheets that have been in service and operating reliably for years. The fact that so many ESC's contain parallel regulators leads me to believe this is one of those applications that the manufacturers did not cover. This does not mean it doesn't operate properly.
If a regulator starts cutting back it's voltage for reasons of overcurrent or temperature, the paralleled regulators will start taking load. I see no reason that a regulator run at current or temperature limit will fail. The regulator protection circuits are usually very well designed. Does it really matter if one regulator takes all the load until it reaches it's operating limits?
