Map label toggle on feature layer

I have a feature service layer with 24(!) classes and I would like to add some interactive labels to help distinguish between similar symbol fills (I also need to sort out picture fills that work in ArcGIS Desktop and the Runtime). I've seen some posts regarding creating a graphics layer from the feature layer but I wonder how this will work if new features are being added. Will the graphics layer need to be recreated each time a new feature is added? Can the new features be captured with draw events and added to the graphics layer incrementally? Not sure what the easiest/best method would be.
