Your observations are correct. In a 6 player game there is nothing stopping Eastwatch from triggering once for each opponent and moving a power from any character to its controller's house card, for a total of 5 power moved (though one at a time, rather than all at once).
Sorry, Brotherhood players, that's how the card is written.

It it triggered only once, the text would be "after one or more opponents reveal a plot card" and if it was limited to one character for each opponent, it would continue "move a power token from a character controlled by that opponent to its controller's House card" or have an explicit limit.

- Responses can only be triggered 1 time per thing they are Responding to. Eastwatch response to "an opponent" revealing a plot card. So yes, in your situation, with 5 opponents each revealing 1 plot card, that is 5 different things that the card can respond to (kind of like a card that says "after a character dies" has 5 different things to respond to when Valar kills 5 characters). You can trigger the Response 1 time for each plot card revealed by an opponent.
- Card text is very specific. When a card refers to "a character," it means any character in play. If there is supposed to be some sort of relationship between a particular character and a particular player, the card would need to specify it. SImply saying "a character" doesn't narrow it down at all. So yes, in your situation, Opponent A revealing a plot card allows the Eastwatch player to move power between Player B's character and House card.

Thank you for the responses. I guess no further explanation is needed. ~'The truth is simple.' It's all straight forward in the card text.

Honestly, it is. But people tend to decide how they want something to work out, then try to explain why the card text "really says" that, instead of reading what is actually on the card.
