For points 1 and 3, I would group them together since they are related
to the InnoDB storage engine, and word them something like this, so he
is prepared for the questions:

1) InnoDB 

a) Features and advantages of InnoDB ina nutshell (transactions,
referential integrity, ...etc.)

b) Considerations for moving an application to InnoDB from MyISAM. The
application is Drupal, and hence a CMS one, where the mix is a lot of
reads relative to the writes.

c) Overhead imposed by InnoDB compared to the speed of MyISAM which is
one of MySQL's fortes.

d) What MySQL AB intends to do with the problem of the SQL parser not
returning errors when the storage engine does not support a command or
a feature, giving a false sense of successful execution? This is one
of the critiques here
