It's always worked that way. You never 'lose' experience playing, you simply stop leveling and the record screen won't report anything after the cap. The XP is still gained and stored.
I don't see it as 'abuse', those points are 'earned' and as the old saying goes; "If it isn't for sale, don't put it in the shop window". All those points are there to be earned and, in the case of multiclasses especially, sorely needed.
To me the XP cap is just a clumsy way of dealing with a balance issue that could have been better solved with a level cap instead (or better still, putting more thought into the rewards scaling - but then again "hindsight is twenty-twenty vision").
Oh, I wonder what will happen with imported SoD characters. If, as some say, farming xp in BG1 gives an advantage in BG2, then SoD will probably triple the amount of xp you can start BG2 with. Sounds interesting
Not necessarily. From what we've heard from the devs, it sounds like you'll need to pursue virtually all of the content in SoD in order to hit the level cap, as opposed to BG1, where you can hit the level cap with a fair bit left to go in the game.
What about picking up NPCs with higher XP?
I'd always prefer to build up their proficiencies myself.
