1Password is syncing small independent pieces of data. OmniFocus is syncing potentially large interrelated bits of data.
DropBox doesn't guarantee that the file you retrieve from their server will be the latest version which was sent to their server. (They just figure that if you don't get what you want immediately, you'll try again a little later—or if you're still getting the wrong copy somehow, you'll go retrieve a different version using their history mechanism.) Without that guarantee, we really can't use it as a basis for robust automatic syncing.
