Nope. I just made a request for it in BugZilla a couple of days ago.
What I actually did to get dynamic symbology is:
1.- Dynamically generate a symbol file for each request
2.- Dynamically generate the symbol images
3.- Make sure all images mentioned in 1 are created in 2
4.- Assign the new SymbolSet to the map object.
With a symbolObj or similar I would save myself 1 and 3, and that would
be very, very nice, performance wise at least.
