I think the whole "You learn your class while leveling" deal is utter bullox. Things keep changing as you level, and you can't play as a level 80....until you have all of the level 80 requirements in place.

I agree with your statement to a certain extent.For example...Leveling a frost mage (frost=leveling spec) doesn't teach you much about end-game raiding. It teaches you about survival. You respec at 80 to either fire or arcane (unless you think frost dps is "good"....). If you spent your entire gaming experience in one spec you may find your role in raids (at 80 with a new spec) a little awkward... I would recommend some time in front of a target dummy with EJ open in a browser window.Leveling a druid or pally is even more drastic. How many people collect gear for bear tanking, kitty (melee) dps, moonkin (ranged) dps, and resto healing? We all pick a spec that we like and level with it. At 80 there's a good chance we will switch, and everything we "learned" will take a back seat to what EJ says works best.I think it's fair to say that I could learn what each of my spells does by reading the tooltips and leveling from 60 to 80. Everything after that comes from sites like EJ, anyway...
