As far as I can tell, in German you don't wait FOR something but wait ON it.

i.e. "Ich warte auf dich" = I am waiting for (on) you

Can any native speakers back that up?

I think "Nein, wir warten dafür nicht" would be correct.

It would have to be "nein, wir warten darauf nicht".

but i seem to have seen drauf used in places where it should have been - i thought - darauf, and so i thought the former a common abbreviation of the latter... could someone clear this up for me? VD (not that other VD..)

It's a common abbreviation, yes.
