This is off the top of my head:

host (telnet, ftp, ssh)
ftp (old ftp)
kadmin/changepw (change password)
nfs (nfs V3/4)
afs/cellname (AFS)
http (Microsoft http spnego thing)
xmpp (Jabber)

Within MIT, there's also
daemon (lots of local services )
lpr (LPRNG)
discuss (old crufty message boards)
zephyr/galaxy (Zephyr instant messaging)

I think there is a registry of SASL service names and GSSAPI service
names at IANA.
