comment Data model for persisting queries to database
Hmm, what are your UI requirements and target audience? A simple DSL for ANDs and ORs can be easier than a visual query builder (or a fancier interface can do both and have one update the other). Also, it's hard to tell if you are better off storing the query by constituent parts or just saving and parsing a string. Do you need to use SQL to query your saved queries?

comment Data model for persisting queries to database
Who will be creating the queries? How will they be evaluated - does the query need to eventually be expressed in pure SQL or is it up to you? What technologies are you using to implement this (some environments make some techniques easier or harder)?

comment How to signal that a method chain should not continue?
Usually you return something representing the invalid state, that can be used to continue the chain later.

comment What is meant by an HTML5 application?
This is somewhat nitpicking, but people also often mean "browser features not actually part of the HTML5 spec per se, but part of some other standard developed at roughly the same time as HTML5". For example, WebGL isn't part of the W3C HTML5 spec. Most people don't need to care about the difference. Most people saying "HTML5 application" are unaware such distinctions are possible to make.

comment What to do if you're stuck on a project because you got dumped in without the information you need?
Do you need to know what it should do or is it figuring out how it does it? (Knowing what it should do includes being able to determine if a change you made broke other existing functionality).

comment Addressing the fact that primary keys are not part of your business domain
business keys are eternally unique - until they aren't. If you are using the business keys as primary when this happens then the change in business rules breaks more stuff.
