ftp comes to mind, its always the first thing i turn off when i install it for anything other then personal usage.

The only use to correct "reverse" DNS i can see is in case of a mail server, if you want to filter dynamic and static IP's (but even this is theoretical since it is hardly used in practice) other then that i regard it as a feature that brings more problems then it solves.

smtp, kerberos, tcpwrappers ...  off the top of my head, surely thar be
more dragons.
