Lots of good work. Incredibly much easier to understand. Remaining broad issues:
1) Needs some editing and seems a bit premature to endorse as-is. Some edits in the attached but some are just grammatical and poorly-written sentences.
2) What is the failure mode if a data source cannot process a particular query (e.g., it does not have the granularity of temporal information requested)? Should this be specified in the query or defined by the Query Health use case? Either way, it probably should at least define the ability to return an approximate answer.
3) This is an incredible amount of complexity to implement. It will be daunting to potential implementers and potentially even impossible. Although it describes a theoretically computable and expressive query language, it is not clear to me that anyone can support all of it. Perhaps what is needed is a minimal subset of operations which an implementer need to be Query Health compliant? The Intermediate Representation is a good constraining step in that direction and one option could be to include that here as it gets fleshed out.
A very rough commentary of the Word document is here:

Big improvement but we need to address all of the issues before endorsing the document. The page at http://wiki.siframework.org/Query+Health+-+Query+Format contains a number of significant issues that remain to be addressed.

The standards should not limit HQMF data representations to XML. There are more efficient, computable, and easier to understand HQMF declarative formats that avoid the problems caused by the current XML data representations. See my critique
