ed - dime is an alternative for multipart/mixed, obstensibly motivated by
the "binary objects" with soap problem that you mentioned. there is a second
draft, draft-nielsen-dime-soap-00, which talks about using dime to encode

neither of these drafts have any "control" component, as such, they are akin
to mime, not beep.

one could certainly define a beep "profile" to transport soap encoded using
dime, just as there's one for transporting soap encoded using mime...
