What about 28.8 kbps (28,800 bps) and 33.6 kbps (33,600 bps)? I'm not sure about the popularity of the latter, but I have a box full of 28.8's somewhere [grin]. Also, 56,000 bps is usually referred to as 56 kbps (due to line use limitations and the desire to abbreviate), but I think the actual speed is 57,600 bps???
