The SOAP in BEEP binding document is undergoing revision in the IETF;
   http://ftp.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-mrose-rfc3288bis-01.txt

One of the things that I noticed during a quick look-over is that it 
now supports XOP; I found this section especially interesting;

> As stated in Section 4
>    of XOP [8], XOP may be used with diverse packaging mechanisms.  When
>    an implementation of BEEP in SOAP does support MTOM/XOP, it SHOULD
>    support the MIME Multipart/Related XOP Package format, and MAY
>    support others.  Additional formats could in future include XOP
>    package formats specific to BEEP (For example, sending the
>    attachments on a different channel to the SOAP channel, which would
>    avoid searching for the MIME boundary tags and allows lazy delivery
>    of attachments - delivering them only when really needed.)

Cheers,
