FeatureLayer : Without ObjectId Field?

I've got a layer within an AGS service that returns a load of point features based on dynamically changing data held in a non-spatial database via an ODBC connection, I'd like to connect a FeatureLayer to the service but it only renders a single feature in the map.

I can see from some investigations that the ESRI JavaScript relies (very heavily) on there being one field in the data that can be used as the 'ObjectIdField' to uniquely identify rows, there isn't an appropriate field in my data and I don't really want to arbitrarily generate something for these data.

Anyone found a way around this restriction?
