While I appreciate SPDY, what's the point of a draft if adoption is so far not widespread?

Google's documentation seemed quite sufficient to implement, and until we have a proper reference implementation, this seems a little half-cocked.

Maybe I misunderstand the point of the IETF draft?

Firefox, Chrome, and Opera support SPDY. Apache, nginx, and Node.js support it. Large Google sites support SPDY (gmail), so does Twitter, and Facebook is working on it (http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/ietf-http-wg/2012JulSep/...).

I don't know what qualifies as widespread to you, but this is at least a great start. And there are plenty of good implementations to reference.
