Yes. I thought the point was for consumers to use these “storage” clusters.

Consumers won’t federate anything. They will set up the routing as if the publishers
were publishing to their local “storage” cluster. This will require them knowing
only what exchange gets what messages and nothing else. This is pretty straightforward.

The hard part would be replying to publishers that publish to a different cluster.
This is something that’s currently not addressed by the Federation plugin at all.
But in a fair share of cases communication between publishers and consumers is uni-directional.
