No, the lock is connected with PID:

.#testfile -> alpha mentat localdomain 2339

We can safely assume that the PID is unique. Moreover jed does not
break when trying to edit locked file, it just politely asks user
whether steal the lock or not.

some directory - he has write access to it. Of course it is not always
true, but in most cases...
