OS X Dictionary bleg

I was playing around with OS X's dictionary app this morning and I noticed that it allows me to specify which dictionary the app uses. This, presumably, means that I should be able to download dictionaries other than the one provided. Which would be nice, both because the default dictionary isn't as robust[1] as I would like and because I'm all about the multiple sources. But if there are other dictionaries available, I can't find them. Little help? And, yeah, I'd pay a fair amount for the chance to use the OED on my Mac, but...

1 Which, supposedly, is the Oxford American but which lacks the scope I've come to expect from Oxford branded reference works.
