TYPO3 does not care about the protocol used. You could use TYPO3 as Email 
backend over SMTP/IMAP if you like.
You must just set the GET/POST parameters properly if you want any 

The webserver used must speak SPDY. I think Varnish has or wants to add 
support for this. Also, for just the HTML, SPDY has no real advantage 
(accept header compression). The real goal is to to send more data without 
having to create another TCP connection (3-way handshake). The real gain is, 
when you can send all images, CSS, JS, HTML, etc. over a single connection.
AFAIK, you the server can even send data before the client requests it. The 
reduces the number of roundtrips greatly.

I do not think that TYPO3 can do anything regarding SPDY, except giving 
proper headers, but this should be done anyway.

If you find a webserver that supports SPDY (nginx maybe?; SPDY module for 
Apache?), you are good to go.
