Yes, that is the expected behaviour. Note that you can switch protocols 
without changing the code by setting the AMQP_PROTOCOL environment 
variable, e.g. run the examples like this
   AMQP_PROTOCOL=AMQP_0_8 ./bin/ExampleProgram.exe

Correct. 0-9 support is under development.

The .NET client was actually developed with a different broker as the 
primary target. Your point is valid though; we should change the default 
to whatever protocol is supported by the latest version of the RabbitMQ
