Ok, thanks for the info guys. I had a long reply but I guess it didn't go through yesterday. I'll send it anyway just for posterity.

The following is just opinion, but since it's \my/ opinion, it's \very/ interesting!

It might be best (in some future world) to let routing keys and binding keys be \lists/ of strings, pre-parsed by the client. If RabbitMQ doesn't have to interpret separator characters, it can't get it wrong!

(That said, this would be an extension to the AMQP protocol, but all of these other suggestions would be extensions too.)
