No. The specification does not describe the broker behavior. Even
something like "/topic/foo" means a JMS-style topic named "foo" is
outside of the spec.

It seems that things might work with queues since a STOMP destination
of "/queue/foo" will AFAIK use a queue named "foo". To be confirmed.

Topics are more problematic but this does not seem to be STOMP specific.

In AMQP, how would you configure the RabbitMQ ACLs so that client A
can only send to amq.topic with a routing key matching A.* while
client B is restrcited to routing keys matching B.*?

The http://www.rabbitmq.com/access-control.html page does not really
describe what a reource is. Would a syntax like amq.topic:A.* make
sense to perform routing key based access control?
