Excellent.   Thank you for your helpful reply.   

My interest is in developing an API for streaming real-time sampling 
data back to clients.
I would create a custom "control" channel, e.g. BEEP channel 1, over 
which I can interrogate
my servers for catalog information.    I then "subscribe" to data points 
of interest, indicate
desired sampling frequencies, etc. and ask the server to create a data 
channel back to
the client.  The messages on the data channels are data sample messages. 
My "control"
channel allows me to add/remove/alter data samples on the streams, 
create new data channels,
destroy them, etc. 

So the model I am looking at implementing is: one control channel 
client->server and n data
channels server->client.  In fact it's very similar to the "active" ftp 
model, except of course it's
all over a single BEEP session.

I think I will actually need two profiles.   Each client with need a 
data sink profile and each server
will need a data source profile.  The client seeks out the servers data 
source profile, configures
a data channel, and then the server connects back to the clients data 
sink profile.
