We used to stick a cork in the top of seat posts that had a separate clamp to keep water out.

I'm not so sure about the bottom of the fork thing. For one thing, the part that you're sealing up is already totally separated from the headset. Also, if you have a quill stem, water is going to get into the steerer tube. If you seal up the bottom with a cork, the water can't get out. I'm also a believer in having a drain hole in the bottom bracket shell.
