Thinking this through a bit further.

Why is anyone going to move from SHA-2 to SHA-3 ? Only reason I can think
of is a real or perceived weakness in SHA-2.

That being so, I can't see why they would go for a lower number of
bits/rounds.

For OpenPGP, I think the case for 512 only or 256 and 512 is pretty strong.
