I find it amusing that the stuff you get from XP you say was useless, but then you still went way out of your way and altered your play style just to farm said useless XP. You DO have OCD! You do get XP from headshots though, which is a bonus for lethal that equals the non-lethal bonus. The only unbalanced thing is the ghost bonus really, and you can get that lethally as long as you use silenced weapons.

I didn't "farm" the XP system, I discovered it doing the mission where you have to get into that abandoned warehouse that turns out to be the FEMA place. Once I snuck past everyone and reached the elevator, it triggered the end of that part of the mission, and gave me the bonuses for ghost, etc. I realized there was still unexplored places, and I wanted to go back to the guy at the beginning of the level and sell some crap. After triggering the end of the mission, it didn't matter if you were spotted or an alarm went off because you already had your bonuses. I obviously didn't do that because I got the achievement for not setting off alarms. I did sneak back out to explore the rest of the map, knocking people out along the way.

And you don't get the same XP for going lethal or non lethal. A non lethal take-down gives you 50 XP, and a head shot with the tranquilizer gives you a total of 40 XP. A head shot with a gun gives you 20 XP.
