Many services use form-urlencoded for form data, though not for files, 
and typically not for large strings.
Google's Picasa uses multipart/related instead of multipart/form-data.

I believe that Google App engine has a few areas where POST is used with 
x-www-form-urlencoded only. I'm not certain.
Many RPC services expect POST + form-urlencoded.

Again, I realize that you're looking for specific, existing services, 
citations. It's going to take me some time to put that together.
