Yeap. And the best way to make cash (if you ever need it) is to double-enchant jewelry and sell it to rich merchants. Picking up and carrying heavy objects is just silly.
Of course by the time you learn to double-enchant, you probably won't need any cash so it might be a moot point.
Either way, Bethesda needs to introduce armor sets and rare epic items that could be farmed ala Blizzard and the gaming universe will be complete. Throw in multiple playthroughs that increase in difficulty (and serve as a good way to try all the different branching storylines) and no new games will be needed after that. Like ever.
