[rabbitmq-discuss] Dead letter exchange statistics?

While trying out dead letter exchanges, I noticed that dead lettered 
messages don't seem to appear in the statistics on the admin console. So if 
I'm dead-lettering a lot of messages (eg, subscriber that 
reject(requeue=false) all messages) the dead letter exchange that is 
receiving those messages shows as idle. I would've expected the Message 
Rate In to be equal to the rate of dead lettered messages. 

The same thing applies to any queues attached to the dead letter exchange. 
The Incoming Message Rate shows 0, even though I can see the Ready Message 
Count going up.

Is that a bug, or is it expected behavior for some reason?
