Yes, the "headers_exchange_requires_match_arg" rule in the spec states:

     When creating a binding between an exchange E, of type
     headers and any queue Q the arguments field MUST contain
     a key "x-match" to a value of type str8 which must equal
     either "any" or "all". If the arguments field does not
     contain a key "x-match" then an exception of type
     invalid-argument MUST be raised.

However as far as I'm aware, none of the other clients add it by 
default. I'm not sure I see much value in the code you have removed, 
especially given the problems you point out.

Does the java broker have a default if no explicit x-match is specified?
