Yeah, don't argue with the GM!
Honestly though it depends. My personal preference is for the XP to be for the story instead of each character or player. IG rewards being loot and reputation, etc instead of more XP than the guy that is a fresh PC. Other GM's not so much.
However, if you get 20xp and die the GM asks you to start over without anything extra it's probably not as big of a deal as if everyone has 200xp with a couple free destiny points from the end of stories and are running around with X fighting III and valyrian fullplate and power 60 houses.
