I would like to see the equivalent of NeXT's Digital Webster for
foreign languages (Russian, German, and French top my list).  I want
to see native language dictionaries as well as bilingual ones.  I
think dictionary makers guard their word lists jealously, and
electronic distribution scares them, otherwise I don't understand why
such products are so rare, or, with the exception of Digital Webster,
so poor.
