You could create all the exchanges, queues and bindings from the admin UI, 
or using some dedicated configurator program or script. Then the actual 
applications could use the Passive forms of the exchange & queue 
declaration functions, which don't require them to know anything beyond the 
names of the queues or exchanges they want to use. 

But I'm certainly no expert, so there may be other options out there.
