GNU Parallel tries to adhere to POLA. I am not sure if transferring
absolute paths into a stripped dir will adhere to that.

rsync has some magic if you insert ./ into the path. According to man rsync:

rsync -avR /foo/./bar/baz.c remote:/tmp/

That would create /tmp/bar/baz.c on the remote machine.

We could adopt that functionality. Would that solve your problem?
