We have a similar image on

I honestly don't think it will make it any clearer w.r.t. bindings.
Also, technically it's not necessary that a consumer does the binding.
Any app can do it, it's just that the code that consumes messages has more
information about queues. We may mention that it is more common for
consuming services to do the binding.
