Overlap labels rather than not displaying them

By default, feature labels do not appear when overlapping with other labels. There is ample documentation on how to change this default behaviour so that all labels appear (and overlap, if necessary):

Why specify methods to resolve label conflicts?—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop 

Unfortunately, this documentation only applies to ArcGIS for Desktop. I cannot find anything that suggests you can change the default behaviour when using the Javascript API. It seems strange that this would be the case, however, considering that the functionality is present in the Desktop software.

Does anyone know how to make it so that all labels are displayed, and overlap when they conflict?
