Excellent idea (and list)!

Alan Hoenig recently mentioned the Cardo Font in a missive:
Bembo clone, but sadly no italic yet.

Also there's the mnsymbol font to go with the free copy of MinionPro  
from AR:

Free UCS Outline Fonts:

and of course there're the various Polish fonts, Antykwa Torunska &c.

There're a couple of free sample OpenType fonts which people may find  
of use:

FontFont gives away URWGroteskTOT-ExtLigExtWid.otf

Elsner & Flake give away AlternateGothicEFOP-NoTwo.otf

Fonthaus provides Metro Sans Light

all sans serif though.

The FontLab folks used to have some free samples, but I don't see  
them available anymore.

And of course there're lots of free fonts of the 1,001 fonts on a CD- 
ROM ilk, but they're probably not worth mentioning here.
