We know that works well for you. Particularly with the way you squat.

I think this goes hand-in-hand with finding the right frequency for a particular lift. Squats more often, perhaps Bench/Dead not so often.

2) I need to think long term regarding my lifts and not pressure myself for rapid progress.

5) I need some assistance work. I need to maintain a minimum level of strength from calves to biceps.
I think these two can relate quite well. Some targets for assistance work should help spread the PR's around a little so you're not constantly banging away at Squat PRs. Perhaps rep records like I'm doing or other exercises like we've done in the past.

EDit - Also something I was thinking about while watching the Strongman on TV (don't tell me the result, I don't know the final yet!) - Is that these guys are just fucking strong from head to toe. They're massive, muscular and strong. A bit of rep work and assistance will help here I'm sure.

3) I hate long term periodization.
Same. Pre-planning according to someone else's schedule isn't natural.

Shorter 3 week cycles then? You know where I'm going with this.
