I know it doesn't take long to get full thirsty blues if you're active but if you want make a change that day rather than a week later you should be able too. It's your honor, you should be able to store and use it as you please.
As illustrated by Squiji, that could be avoided by resetting JP/Honor at the start of every new Season/Major Patch (Where new loot is added to vendors, nothing was added in 4.1)

Keep the VP/CP downgrading into Honor/JP and give those who have the points wasted atm a small monetary gift. At least VP capped players (By this I mean with nothing else to buy) can sell off the boots for a bit of money, CP capped players can't do %##! compared.

You can get more by buying justice points with honor to 'uncap' yourself, you lose heavily in the conversion to and fro though. e.g. 1125 (3 x 375) hon points = 750 (3 x 250) justice points = 500 (2*375 jp) honor when back under the cap (i.e. when spending your honor at level 85)
The problem happens at 80 with the Wrathful gear. It's just about competitive at 80, though by 82 it's easily outclassed by Cata gear, despite the lack of resilience. The problem is it costs something like 16k honor to fill all slots, so by the time you could buy it, it'd be well out of date unless you're XP-locked.
To be honest, it's probably another issue altogether. The 80 gear needs updating and reducing in honor.
I'd say, if you have no more use for honor, try going for a new challenge, try setting up a rbg team, go for conquest instead of honor, since I'd say you play for fun.
then again on the other hand, I can understand people not wanting to go through all the trouble of doing that, and people who don't want to play arena if they don't get conquest anymore, since they already reached cap...
if you fall under that category, keep buying enchants :(
