The ConcurrentIMP session was added before the Isabelle2015 release, where PARALLEL_ALLGOALS was not yet available as canonical shortcut.  Thus it fell into the gap of the historical confusion of what PARALLEL_GOALS really means.

When would one wish to use PARALLEL_GOALS now? (Why not just change its behaviour to that of PARALLEL_ALLGOALS?)

The behaviour and the name should fit together. A tactical that is a parallel version of ALLGOALS should be called like that. If PARALLEL_GOALS had been like PARALLEL_ALLGOALS from the outset, I would have also used that name.
