On the contrary, last hitting appears to double the XP gained.

Laning = pushing your lane and destroying towers.
Killing heroes can influence, but does not equal, pushing your lane.
Nutmeg never said what he was doing in his lane, he just said he was killing heroes, so whether he was doing a good job of laning is still up in the air.
If it's as you say and you don't get much XP from killing heroes, then that just makes this game a bit more about laning and creeps, and means there's less of a difficulty curve and the game isn't decided from first blood (like people would often complain DotA) was and that's a world of good.
Killing enemy heroes will still give indirect benefits (they're out of commission for a little while and you can push your lane or w/e) but it won't give you massive XP on top of everything else which would effectively make life incrementally difficult your opponent and incrementally easy for you.
I wonder how much XP towers give compared to heroes and creeps?
