I don't see how anyone here can answer that question.  The answer is, how
much data are you serving up from those services?  That's how much space
you need.

The root of my ftp server is in /srv/ftp, but I don't have any data stored
there at all.  The files that I offer by ftp are all stored elsewhere, and
I remount them under /srv/ftp using mount's 'bind' option.

Of course?  Wow, that is a lot of partitions.  Do you find yourself having
to repartition a lot?
