What if exp across the board were reset to default levels, then non-aggro mobs gave 1/2 exp and aggro mobs gave double exp? Would this solve some of the abovementioned issues? This would mean zoning low level aggro zones would give 4x the exp of grinding in a safe exp zone. Or would this be too hars...

If the game was balanced the mob wouldn't have over 10X the hitpoints a fully decked out warrior/rogue has. This gives the mob and casters an advantage.

Class/race/alignment restrictions are already included and give more leeway in adding positive stats to items.
