How does one scale encryption strength upwards from 256-bit?
+1 Excellent discussion. One point, however, about the overkill of long keys. This assumes that a believed strong algorithm is in fact strong. If a break is found against the algorithm, then extra key bits can certainly provide a valuable safety margin. You hint at this in your answer at security.SE when you discuss QC (which could be considered a kind of "break"), but I wanted to bring it forward here as well.
