The one time I had to look at it was for H.323, which I believe is 
still quite prevalent, although possibly losing ground to SIP?
  
according to the ITU, LDAP even uses it?
  
http://www.itu.int/ITU-T/asn1/uses/index.htm
  
Looks like it is used in some applications that take some fairly 
serious heat (e.g. WiMAX, UMTS and LTE).
  
Still not suggesting it for HTTP tho :)
