I've been beeped at before at a stop sign. I was waiting for a cyclist who was about to pass in front of my car and the guy behind me must have thought I was waiting for nothing.
It annoyed me, but there is no way I would get out of my car to talk to the beeping driver.
I won't tell the full story as it's long, but my DH was beaten up by a maniac as a result of road rage. There are some nut jobs out there, so it's best to keep to yourself.

I don't think it's reasonable. I have been very tempted to do it but you just never know who is in the other car. It might be a nut job, or a little old lady who would have a heart attack at the sight of you coming at her (whether you meant it aggressively or not)
I was on a junction with a give way sign recently, coming out onto a busy road, and I needed to get across three lanes fairly quickly. I was waiting until the way was totally clear, obviously, but the driver behind was going bonkers on their horn because, I assume, they thought I was clear to go. I was sorely tempted to hop out and give them an earful but what would it achieve really? Why should I upset my day & turn a stupid impatient tantrum on the horn into something bigger. When they are at the top of the queue they can decide when it's safe, until then it's my turn.

Not reasonable at all. I think the honking is more reasonable, purely because it is not necessarily aggressive, sounds like it was intended to alert the first car, rather than to be aggressive.
I have beeped people who've been sat at a green light for long enough that it's obvious they're on their phone/definitely not paying attention. Usually they drive off and give a little wave.
If someone got out of their car to talk to me i would be bloody petrified.

No I wouldn't get out of the car.
If the road was completely deserted, as a last resort I would pull out onto the other side of the street and overtake them.
But no id never get out of the car, too many freaks around now, I'd be too scared to approach them.

So perhaps you would be justified using the horn to make the driver in front aware you are positioned behind them.

I would honk my horn is someone was sitting at a stop sign for no reason. Ive got better thigns to do than sit behind someone who cant decide whether to drive off or not. Getting out of the car is completely over the top!

I would think getting out of the car to confront the person who honked at you a bit over the top and unreasonable and if my DH did that I would be pretty peeved!! He would just be inflaming the whole situation.
Yes it would be annoying to have some honk at you, but I certainly wouldn't get out - you never know who you are going to confront.
