Re: Suggestion: Next Time Our LIs Become Obsolete (@ lvl 70?). . .
I agree to an extent, but I've come to the conclusion that the conversion rate between one generation and the next (read: you decon a lvl 60 maxed LI and get a 15,000 mirkwood ixp rune) was a bad move by the devs. It effectively removes any inclination I may have had to actually partake in the grind like I did during Moria (where I spent countless hours doing and redoing the Dolven View instances and Esteldin bounties leveling and decon'ing items for runes & ixp). Given the return on investment of my time, I will be levelling up my 2 LI's to use and that's it. Why should I bother with the grind when there's nothing in it for me but a dead-end? Come the next expansion, all my "mirkwood item xp" will just be useless junk taking up space in my vault just like my moria ixp is now. Where's the incentive in that?

And that's exactly where the current LI system has gotten me.
If I wanted to grind endlessly for little or no reward I'd be playing Lineage.
