The basic problem is that, unlike Mobipocket, the ePub file format does not define a dictionary format, so every reader manufacturer has to "reinvent the wheel". This is, IMHO, a serious flaw in ePub. With Mobipocket, on the other hand, dictionaries are defined by the file spec, hence you can buy a dictionary in the bookstore.
