This is a client feature. The Drafts folder is not sync-able on iOS.

Correct. This is also a client bug/feature/limitation. I'd rather not  
start sending "dummy" folder ids to the client because then we will  
have to worry about adding logic that would handle/ignore  
synchronization requests for those folders - and have to explain to  
users why there is a trash folder on the client that doesn't match the  
contents of a trash folder on the server etc...
