This pins it down to what I wanted to say. Of course all of your given 
examples are correct, but they are not true QAO:

"when do you want to drink?"
ghorgh [bItlhutlh DaneH]
(a question word in front of a SAO)
and not
[ghorgh bItlhutlh] DaneH
(a Question as object)

The "when" refers to "you want to drink".
It's not "you want that when do you drink?"
