This would work for me. The ACL based access control that was
mentioned recently on the list can be added later to prevent unwanted
operations from the Flash clients. I (wrongly) thought the exchange
name might be discoverable using management operations on the broker.

Yes, I read it but apparently only cursorily. The capability concept
seemed to me too abstract then so I failed to connect the dots to my
actual problem.

Best regards,
