The exchange type used isn't critical, the purpose was to allow the test 
controller to easily address a particular subset of clients (e.g. 
senders or receivers).

If the test clients merely return the name of their control queue then 
the controller can bind them as it sees fit for the purposes of its 
communication. Each test client is then only responsible for creating 
its control queue, binding that such that it receives invites and then 
reading all the control messages that arrive in the queue.

One of each is fine to begin with (though I do think that many of each 
will be desirable as well) and makes the point above (i.e. easy 
addressing of a subset of clients) less of an issue.
