I'm afraid that's not possible. The apt repository is build from scratch 
at every release. Yeah, that's not ideal.

No, that's how it's always been.

The versions that make it into the Debian repos proper are almost 
identical to the ones we release, but our repo will tend to be a bit 
ahead of Debian.

Alternatively you can download old releases in .deb format from 
http://www.rabbitmq.com/releases/rabbitmq-server/. But of course that's 
no apt repository.
