Mac OS X "OS X 10.9, which is internally codenamed 'Cabernet', will focus on various 'power-user' enhancements and take core features from iOS, according to our sources. Unlike operating system updates such as OS X Leopard and OS X Lion, OS X 10.9 will likely not be an overhauled approach to how the operating system feels and functions." Features for power users and features from iOS? Seems like an oxymoron. Still, if they manage to finally fix the Finder and Spaces, I'll be happy.

What is the disadvantage if I were to format a large hard drive with ExFAT?

Because it's essentially FAT32 with support for large volumes and files added. While not directly compatible with FAT32, it does retain most of FAT32's bad points. It's highly unoptimized, prone to fragmentation, and can become corrupted without much effort as it only holds the filesystem information at one location at the beginning of the drive. Plus, it's not journaled, and we all remember what that's like. It's fine for SD cards or other removable flash media, but I would never advise its use for anything other than quickly swapping files between systems on a thumb drive or sd card.
