I can guarantee you that heirlooms will be turned off after level 80. I would bet real life money on it.It will be the same as how they wiped rested EXP on patch day for both expansions.I predict that old heirlooms will have their EXP completely turned off, and only be useful as scaling equipment. At level 90 you will have to purchase new heirlooms if you want an exp bonus for leveling.This would be in-tune with the way Blizzard has managed things so far (after all, they wouldn't want you to need to farm level 80 content in order to get heirlooms once the level cap is 90)

Either that or the balance experience gains around you having heirloom equipment. Which they probably wouldn't do. Or maybe we will see +exp gains on more green gear.

Blizz wants u to experince their hard work that they put into the game. Highly doubt they will be allowed. Same as with flying being forbidden 'til lvl 77. They want u to appreciate the game. They might even stop selling them in wrath and make it so that if u want them u will have to get them at lvl 90 with lvl 90 badges.

Even if XP is turned off, and they become scaling items, they'll probably become handy for lvls 85 to 90, which is probably when your end of game gear will run out, depending on your progression for WotLK.. perhaps 85 if you have heroic gear, and 88 if you have tier 8, etc.
