Identity manager, proxy page and secured services

I currently trying to build an application based on the JavaScript API V.3.1 and ArcGIS for Server 10.1 using secured services (token authentication). I am a little bit confused about the necessity of a proxy page when using the Identity Manager as the ESRI sample includes the well known proxy configuration ( = "/arcgisserver/apis/javascript/proxy/proxy.ashx";). However, the same sample works also quite well without this line of code.

Can anyone clarify this issue for me. Thank you very much for your help!
