Nice job.

A couple things... I don't think the "how many sites have you built" will
get you any meaningful data. Maybe, "Describe your history with Drupal."
What % time are you currently working with Drupal."

Regarding programming strengths stuff, you might be more direct regarding
the essentials:

How's your CSS?
How's your PHP?
How's your understanding/use of Drupal's phptemplate templating system?

I do understand the desire to keep it short, however...

Thanks for sharing. Let us know how it goes.
