As I look into it, I realize the problem is a lot bigger than I can
handle.  The string "subcriptionName" appears nowhere (as a string).
The names used in stomp are determined by IntrospectionSupport (in util)
and are spelled the way the are because of how they are spelled in the
activemq source.  Unfortunately subcriptionName is used throughout
activemq (in 106 places) as a method name, a variable name, an attribute
name: all over the place. And because of these, it becomes part of

Sweet!  Sounds like your quest for execelence / need to scratch an itch

Good point!  And here's my take on it:
The 4.0.x series of releases are our stable branch where only bug fixes
it in there.
The 4.1 release we are adding new feature and may slightly break some
to make it better.  Your fix should go in here for sure.

But since I consider an incorrect parameter name a bug, I think we
should do
something about it in the 4.0.x branch.  Perhaps try to figure out how
can map the misspelled and the correct property name to the same

By the way, I believe the ConsumerInfo class is where the typo is.
