Yes, that's fair.

If you require true store and forward guarantees (assuming - as you
point out -  unlimited disk space), and you don't want to do producer
flow control using the channel.flow command, then Rabbit is not the
right thing for you ATM.

This has been a topic of discussion lately (look for posts on the
subject by Edwin and Valentino) and obviously we're looking into this
feature (as indicated in my earlier thread), but there is no ETA.
