    Description

      The bug

      When a player dies near a sculk catalyst, the experience dropped by the player causes sculk blocks to be created. However, kingbdogz said in a tweet that player deaths shouldn't cause sculk to spread.
      That makes sense to me in two ways. First, the xp a player has is not innate to them, they collected it, in contrast to them dropping from mob deaths. Second, it doesn't make sense for Mojang to intentionally make dying useful outside of it's organic features (teleporting to your spawn point and restoring your health and hunger). Though of course, the decision is up to Mojang.

      Steps to reproduce

      1. Obtain some xp
      2. Die near a sculk catalyst
