ArcGIS server map server layers in Engine and ArcMap should make use of the functionality provided by the server. This would make it possible to perform the following operations on a server layer:
 
1. Set a definition query in the client for a sublayer
 
2. Fetch features from a sublayer as IFeature or geometries as IGeometry
 
3. Make flash feature work in engine Identify tool
 
4. Select features and render them as selected

I 100% agree. I have posted two other similar ideas.

Allow users to select features, open the attribute table and edit the symbology for a Map Service Layer in ArcMap.

Allow a Definition Expression to be added to a Map Service Layer from ArcMap/ArcGIS Explorer
