We're aware that the current situation with HA policies is inconvenient;
it was the simplest thing that could possibly work.
However, we're more likely to go in the direction of having things like
HA-ness defined outside of the AMQP arguments mechanism altogether in
future. Really arguments should be for things that application authors
care about; it's a contract with the application that these should not
change. The application should not have to know that its queues are HA
or its exchanges are federated; that's a matter for the broker
