Nice list, though I would not ask all of them.
Also I dont think I'd ask "when could I start"

Usually the employer will ask you this, or just expect you can start right away.

I hesitate also in asking about career paths-

Could they view this as you not being totally interested in the position you are applying for?

Interesting point Tim.
I think it shows them you are interested in growing with the company. Which is a good thing.

I see it as a positive question, and most employers would too.

I think it is important to know that and it shows that you are interested in the position. Your time is money in my opinion and you need to make plans and show them you value your time.

While interviewing you the employers usually ask what your availability is. Even if you are not available to start right away, let the employer know that you are flexible and you might be able to arrange to start earlier.
