I wouldn't look at it this way.  Non-parity memory is fine for any application if you judge the risk of memory error to be low enough for that application.  Peripheral interfacing or communications may or may not be such an application.  An application running on RT11 may or may not be.  The OS isn't what decides this, but rather the requirements of the application: the expected bit error rate for the memory technology in use vs. the failure rate that's tolerable for the application.
