the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it.

Helms and capes do. Everything else caps at eighty.

This is fact and cannot be disputed.

The 1-80 heirlooms should be replaced as soon as you ding 80. They do not increase experience gained anymore and the stats are about 100 ilvls lower than the gear you get in Cata starting zones.

actually, i *think* that the XP bonus works through 80. they become completely useless once you hit 81 though. I might be wrong, mind you.

Even if that's true you will be so weak offense and defense wise and will start to pull your hair as mobs continue to macro /target, /troll, /lol on you, so much that you will opt out of the xp bonus and into your sanity.

inb4 ironman done it with white quality gear. If TC wanted to do the Ironman challenge this topic wouldn't exist.

No, the bonus experience stops when you ding 80. Before I posted, I hopped on a level 80 character that I happened to have laying around. I killed the same mob of the same level with heirloom shoulders and without and got the same exp both times.
