To the contrary, I think that the original example is appropriate
for the intended audience (first year undergraduates).
Most of these students haven't heard of the Beta integral.

Why not consider the more general problem of 

f(x) = x^{p} (1-x)^{q}

since I find the above example is too specific and the general
problem is more interesting because f(x) is the integrand of
the Beta integral. 

Just a suggestion, Sir Isaac
