Thanks Gary. I was convinced that the default configuration did not contain
any of the message-discarding options from the slow consumers page I linked
to; I'm not sure where I got that idea. But that explanation makes more
sense than my wild theory about the no-consumer behavior of statically
included virtual topics.
