In FCP, I would edit my 1080 footage knowing that I could always export at a smaller video size (e.g. 720), with no quality distortion. I imagine the same principle applies when working with After Effects animation of illustrator/photoshop layers -- i.e. if the size of my project in After Effects is 1080, will I have any problems when exporting it at 720 (e.g. let's say I want the video to display smaller when embedded on a website)?

No sweat. Make a 1280x720 comp, nest the 1080 comp inside it, scale the nested comp layer to fit inside its new comp, and render away.
