Since there are already IDs for IMAP and POP3, it seems we are down to
3 (+SMTP) or 4 (+SUBMIT) unless we want to break existing applications?

Given that clients often don't know whether they're talking to an SMTP or a 
server, and servers don't know which one they are or maybe both, one ALPN would 
be plenty.

It's still pretty common for a server to offer SMTP on port 25, which turns 
into submission
if the client authenticates.
