OmniDictionary doesn't get a lot of attention most of the time because we don't have enough time / staff to do all the things we would like to do, and it's competing for attention with our commercial applications AND Mac OS X comes with a nice built-in dictionary these days. (Although obviously there are some advantages to OmniDictionary in terms of the available dictionaries, etc.)

The keyboard shortcut issue hasn't been addressed because of that lack of time, because of the workaround via System Preferences (obviously far from obvious enough), because we don't get many complaints about it (although we definitely acknowledge that it's a problem), and because there's not a readily-apparent meaningful alternative that doesn't suffer (even more) from localization issues - if we had come up with one, we probably would have released a fix long ago. We've talked some about building in UI for allowing the user to customize that key binding from within OmniDictionary preferences, but that possibility really hasn't been investigated.

It's always possible that a fix will come with little or no warning, but there's not currently a planned release that will address this problem. Sorry I don't have a better answer for you.
