I totally I agree with you on everything you mentioned especially about been honest.

If you don't know something,just tell the interviewer the truth.

I am currently going through a hiring process in a startup. Last week, I had a "compatibility check" call with the lead front end, and when he asks me about things I am not familiar with, I will answer with "I don't know, but I am a fast learner" — three days later, I received an email telling me that I should proceed to the next step.

I reckon it's better to be straight up than trying to answer something you don't know and end up embarrassing yourself.
