What is the utilization like on the A300-600STs? That is, at what point would frame wear-and-tear or capacity constraints require Airbus to invest in an airframe to supplement and eventually replace the A300-600ST? I presume it would be based upon the A330, but the A350 might be a candidate for all we know at this point.

I doubt that we will see further STs from Airbus. Since the introduction of the A300-600ST Airbus has switched quite a bit of its logistics to water-borne transports. Most of the A380 supply chain is run via RoRo vessels i.e. from Nordenham to Hamburg, from Stade to Hamburg, from Hamburg to St. Nazaire to Toulouse etc. Quite a bit of the A350 will go the same way - and there is still plenty of capacity to switch further models to this way of logistics.
