Well, it will still claim to be a federated exchange, but if you don't
define any upstreams for it then it won't actually federate. Is that 
what you mean by "the exchange is still there with federation set-up"?

Sadly the code to let you monitor running federation links hasn't made
it into any releases yet so the only way to see if federation is
actually happening is to look for messages in the logs along the lines
of "Federation exchange foo connected to blah" at startup. There
shouldn't be any.

Cheers, Simon
