Spirit is not a worthless stat, as an arcane mage a certain amount of spirit allows for mana regen. If your fire or frost or the hybrid frostfire build, sure it isn't worth it, but as an arcane mage who can get a 80% while casting mana regen, it is a fairly strong stat.

It's just that the highest DPS mage spec is for Frostfire Bolt but there's doesn't seem to be much gear for it until you start raiding. In effect, mages can't prepare very well for their eventual DPS spec. They will be gimped in early raiding until they can get the right gear. Other classes can get a lot of the gear they need before raiding, starting out pretty optimized from the beginning.
