Here is a design:

Allow CC and BCC fields* when publishing.  These are given to exchange 
types** when routing (i.e., they are part of the envelope); and, the 
routing code removes Bcc before actually delivering to queues.

Full semantics left as an exercise*** for the reader.

* They would probably have to be put in message headers, but possibly 
they could be given specific support in our clients.

** We'd update direct and topic to take account of them; fanout and 
headers don't need to, and other types given be given the fields and do 
what they like.

*** For example, "" is a valid routing key, so how do you send to 
multiple recipients just with BCC field?
