Great article.  The link to purchase the Cape is actually for a development site.  The correct URL is WWW.Boardzoo.com

This is again another alternative open source initiative like beagle board with smaller size, but the price is much more as compared to Raspberry Pi. Basically it is an initiative backed up by TI, if it is to be required to have acceptance from the students and entry-level developers then it need to be cost effective like Raspberry Pi.

Motor control for these boards is a great application.  Having these inexpensive development platforms is great for the industry.  Keep them coming.

What about Motor Capes?

The BBB is much better for motor control than the competition, so it'd be good to include motor control capes such as the BeBoPr and Replicape.  Then there's the OpenROV cape, which includes an Arduino Mega, RC servo channels, etc.

Actually, I'd say the BBB, Arduino, and RPi are somwhat complimentary.  The RPi is hard to beat as a micro-computer, the Arduino is hard to beat for simplicity, and the BBB combines processing power with powerful interface peripherals.
