    After Rijndael was selected as AES, someone suggested the really

I wish there was a term for this sort of design in encryption systems
beyond just "defense in depth". AFAICT there is not such a term.

How about the Failsafe Principle? ;)

A good question. In my work, I've generally modelled it such that the entire system still works if one algorithm fails totally. But I don't have a name for that approach.
