Publishing a message to a non existing exchange is invalid and will
result in a channel error.

As you're using `auto_delete` exchanges, it is theoretically possible
that in a time
after the exchange was created and between you published a message
some other queue was bound and unbound to/from that exchange.

If that happens, the exchange will be removed before you do publish.
And subsequent publish will fail, as the exchange won't be there.
