I take it upon myself to ask those detailed questions up front - and keep asking them until I get an answer in writing. Then I at least have CYA'd myself. It also helps if the developer knows the industry really well, because then you can tell the customer that they didn't think of this feature or that consequence. I understand that not all developers have the luxury of being experts in some random other field, but it does help.
