In protocol terms it actually *can* make sense to declare a server-named
queue with 'nowait'. That's because AMQP has a little known feature:
blank queue name in commands are substituted with the name of the most
recently declared queue. Hence it is possible to, say, declare a
server-named queue with 'nowait' and then bind it and consume from it.
