Identify Service pass back object

I'm trying to start several Identify tasks simultaneously, the results of each must be associated with a predetermined object.  The issue is how to know what object to assign which response to?

In silverlight I used the 'userToken' object which did a round trip and was passed back with the results.  How is this achieved in JavaScript against the REST API?

Assuming there is no pass back facility exists I looked at using the deferred functionailty of DOJO:

LOOP N = 1 to Query.count
   var OBJ = Query(N);  //OBJ to be attached to results is known here
   idfyParams.geometry = OBJ.geometry
   var idfyTask = new esri.tasks.IdentifyTask(url);
      //Use results and OBJ or QUERY(N)

So will OBJ, N or QUERY(N) be correct when identify resolves each time?  Do I need to hitch the OBJ?  I wonder if OBJ will just be the last value it was set to i.e. QUERY(QUERY.count).
