My $0.02 of speculation:
(1) BEEP didn't have a driving application, and SOAP had all the
mindshare at the time for a generic "build on me!" message passing protocol.
(2) A major concern among protocol implementors at the time was a path
through firewalls. Presumably BEEP didn't provide this.
(3) There was no business case (related to (1) above). How can you
extract value from this protocol?
