I have largely the same experience (althrough with JVM-based and Ruby clients). I am slowly rolling in support for techniques you've described into RabbitMQ clients I maintain.

One more issue I can bring to the table is handling endless redelivery loops, for example:

 * A message is delivered by rabbitmq to a consumer
 * The consumer fails to process it (say there was some edge case in the payload that it could not handle)
 * The message is rejected with requeue = true.
 * A message is delivered by rabbitmq to a consumer…

and so on.

I believe all these topics are worth writing a small book about :)
