Yeah, looks like it.

The AMQP (and STOMP and MQTT) specs all say that names should be encoded 
in UTF-8 (and usually don't provide a way to specify an alternate 
encoding, so it's not obvious what an invalid UTF-8 byte sequence could 
be taken to mean).

Unfortunately the broker does not enforce this. A future version 
probably will.
