Yes, reads are harmless.

You could do that even for writes, except that the data in the overlapping regions would be undefined.

When reading the restart file, I would like each process to the part of the file it 'owns' plus the halo information from neighboring processes.  This means that more than one process will end up reading some parts of the file.  Is this allowed?
