A rod binds to the 'use magic item' skill, which doesn't have an 
associated exp-object.  Not much can be done about this until the 
exp-object pointers are reliably used everywhere, at that point 
anything which would award exp could simply not award it if no 
exp-object is specified, rather than awarding it to whichever skill is 
applied.  Alternatively, one could make that change immediately, and 
wait for players to swear at us about not getting xp for things... it 
would certainly seal the exploit. :-)
