No. Someone else could come along and delete the queue in the meantime.
Provided no one deletes it and the node on which the queue resides
doesn't die, then yes, it'll still be there, but that's the same for all
queues (well, exclusive queues will disappear if the connection that
created the queue disappears, but you get the picture).
