Not yet, but I expect there will be something in Http to parallelize HTTP requests in the future.
Since it's just a performance optimization and performance is fine as-is, I thought it'd be prematurely optimization to go out of my way to use Cmd.batch instead, but in a world where I can parallelize via Http I'd reach for that instead of Task.map2 assuming it would be an easy upgrade. :)
