You are right, 1.0 is a very different thing from 0-9-1.

It's not yet clear when (or indeed if) RabbitMQ will support AMQP 1.0. 
But even then we won't be removing 0-9-1 support for a *long* time I 
strongly suspect.

For example: We still support 0-8 because some clients still use it. 
This is despite the fact that 0-8 and 0-9-1 are conceptually very 
similar and really everyone ought to be able to move to 0-9-1.
