So could you have, say, four seperate power cables plugging into the Tesla?

Four separate charging systems with all the safeties in place, sure why not? My point was that when you go over 250 volts you get into arc flash issues. You can't just plug in something with the kVa that you'd need to charge those batteries in a short time. That much current going to ground will vaporize metal, not like sticking a screwdriver across a 120V outlet, but real ionized metal, the kind that will remove body parts and cauterize the wounds instantly.
There's a reason why homeowners ahouldn't try to tie in their houses to the utility lines and they're "only" 120V each. Short out one of those lines with a screwdriver and you'll have a stubby left (if you're lucky).
