Will the mononamed Kiribayama get an extended shikona?

No change, I assume. If Wakatakakage didn't change, I think he won't either.

So three sets of brothers in Juryo? Has that ever happened?

With the brothers and a load of heya mates, Juryo scheduling will get interesting in March.

As there's apparently some confusion here - the shikona of the three Onami brothers aren't just random placeholders for better future ones, even if they kind of look like that.

Onami III starts at first as Wakatakakage (looks better in kanji: 若隆景) - the Waka from grandpa's Wakabayama, the rest from the name of the 3rd of the 3 sons of Mori Motonari (to whom he showed that 3 arrows won't break easily if bundled), Kobayakawa Takakage.  Arashio-oyakata gave him the shikona. http://www.sanspo.com/sports/news/20170304/sum17030419180009-n1.html

Or via Wikipedia:

[Mōri Motonari] is best remembered for an event that probably never took place – the "lesson of the three arrows". In this parable, Motonari gives each of his sons an arrow to break. He then gives them three arrows bundled, and points out that while one may be broken easily, not so three united as one. The three sons were of course Takamoto, Motoharu, and Takakage, and the lesson is one that Japanese children still learn in school today.

Bit more on Kiribayama's promotion. He wishes to return home to Mongolia in February for a celebration, then back to Japan for some serious training, all the while being mindful of his past injury that slowed his rise up the banzuke. (Hope all this is right, my Japanese sucks)

Here's the link in any case..https://www.jiji.com/sp/article?k=2019013001073&g=spo

Hidetora ichimonji tried to teach that lesson to his sons, but that nasty Saburo kid broke the three arrows toghether and told him that his brothers were scum. Wich was totally true, poor Hidetora.

Wasn't that the band with Steven Seagal and his five brothers?
