I don't speak for the RabbitMQ team anymore, of course, but the philosophy
has in the past been that the client libraries should express the semantics
of AMQP, no more, no less, in as natural a way for the host language as
possible given the constraint of expressing exactly AMQP as she is spoke.
On top of that, where people figure out good patterns for working with AMQP
in a given host language, some of those have been included too in some
cases. Perhaps a wrapper that has an interface along the lines you suggest
would be a worthwhile inclusion.

Regarding the issue of the null check, I'd suggest looking at it
differently: instead of seeing the null check as *polluting* your code,
look at it as *paying attention to what the sender actually said*. The
check is necessary to fully understand the intention of the sender as
expressed using the facilities AMQP offers.
