What if there are 10 consumers, and only one of them rejects it? Clearly 
there is a problem, but is it the sender that is best able to react to 
that? Perhaps the consumer that rejected it is at fault since all the 
other consumers considered the message valid.

What if two of the consumer reject for different reasons (i.e. with 
different errors)?

While I agree that the rejection is important information, I'm not sure 
that propagating it to the sender is the necessarily the most useful way 
of signalling this. Maybe some eventing scheme would actually be useful, 
allowing the system to configure where to direct the information so it 
can be acted upon. Failing that better control over logging of this sort 
of thing.
