    In the ArcGIS.com Javascript viewer, currently there is no way I can see to filter the results displayed from a dynamic map service.

    It would be nice to have some way of applying the 'layerDefs' parameter to a dynamic map service. Several of our map services are designed with this functionality in mind. See one of NOAA/NGDC's custom Javascript mapping apps for an example of this sort of usage (select different repositories to apply a filter to a single map service layer):  http://maps.ngdc.noaa.gov/viewers/sample_index/
