Yes, that sounds right. Sadly there's not really such a thing as a 
"producer" in the sense of a client having agreed that it can produce 
messages - there are just clients that may or may not publish messages. 
So there's an asymmetry with consumers there.

So that's probably your best bet. I can't think of anything better, 
anyway. It's a bit ugly, but should be workable.
