I think that's missing the point of the line in NEM about Soong's whimsical sense of names. "B-4" is supposed to be a pun on "before," because he's a prototype.
Besides, what would the "B" stand for if it were just a dry classification number with no pun involved?
Not disagreeing with you whatsoever, but possibly "Beta"? As in beta testing?
