Yes, there is always a binding to the default exchange for each queue, 
using the queue name as the binding key. This is created automatically 
by the broker and the bindings from the default exchange cannot be 
altered (except indirectly through the creation and deletion of queues).

The default exchange in my view is that it provides an error free direct 
addressing mode for queues and avoids the need for any explicit bindings 
in that simple case. To me that has value.
