Interesting. In the other clients we tend to go down the route of having
a "default" consumer which receives such messages. Someone receiving
these messages is important because if they're not acknowledged then
they can form a memory leak on the broker for the lifetime of the
channel that consumed the messages.

Not saying that all clients should be the same, of course, just that
there are implications to silently discarding those messages - you're
preventing any other consumer of that queue from receiving them.
