The defined USB classes are listed over at [1] (with a bunch of subclasses defined in documents found at [2]).  Nothing for usb->serial however, interestingly, usb modems are standardised by the CDC (communication device class).  I guess a usb->serial could be implemented as a "null" CDC but afaik none are.
