Check this blog :

Long texts in SAP BW: Modeling

In your case to make the length dynamic at infoobject level I dont think so its possible.Infact the method in the above blog is a workaround.

What I would suggest it as of now maintain as many attributes as required now.Later when that situation as you told occurs you may add one more info object and so on.

Since it will be just master data loading and enabling display attributes in queries it should not be a huge task.

Hope this helps.
