You might indeed look into XMPP (RFC 3920), the SOAP XMPP Binding 
(JEP-0072), and the XMPP extension for advanced message processing 
(JEP-0079):

RFC 3920: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3920.txt
JEP-0072: http://www.jabber.org/jeps/jep-0072.html
JEP-0079: http://www.jabber.org/jeps/jep-0079.html

We developed JEP-0079 with input from the creator of BEEP, so I think it 
does most of the key stuff you'd want for message-level acks and such.
