Limit on number of JMS Q's on a single Bus

I am using JMS on WebSphere 6.1 through the Default Messaging Provider. This involved creating a Bus and an ActivationSpec.
I would be using 5 or 6 different Queues for my application. I would be having a similar number of MDBs - one for each of the Queues. I have configured a single Bus. All the Queues have been created and they all refer to the same Bus & Bus's Destination Queue.
I have read that multiple MDBs can use a single ActivationSpec. But I could not spot any reference that gives a recommendation about the limit on the number of Queues that can be created refering to the same Bus (and in turn refering to the same underlying Destination Queue). I expect the number of messages sent through each Queue to be around a max of 100. Each message would have only a light-weight object in it.
Is my approach described fine or should I create separate Destination Queues for each of the JMS Queues? Any recommendations? If there is any available refernce please pass it on.

As an aside: Don't you think WebSphere isn't particularly interested in making lives easier with every new version? I remember configuring JMS in WAS6.0. But that was sometime back. I realise now that this version requires additional configuration - all for a simple usage of its feature!
