Depending how much data you need to transport, you could overload 
CALLERID or EXTEN.  CALLERID is max 13 chars, I believe.  EXTEN can be 
much longer, but is still limited to less than 80 chars.  I had to do 
something similar in 1.0.x when I needed to pass variables between .call 
file calls and the Dialplan.

Server A:
   exten => 666,1,Dial(IAX2/serverb/666^723634^1)

Server B:
   exten => _XXX^XXXXXX^[0-1],1,Set(ACCOUNT=${CUT(EXTEN,^,2)})
   exten => _XXX^XXXXXX^[0-1],n,Set(GOOD_STANDING=${CUT(EXTEN,^,3)})
   exten => _XXX^XXXXXX^[0-1],n,Goto(${CUT(EXTEN,^,3)},1)
