Because if you are running from NAND it will take a lot of precious space. The 
location for /media/card is usually expected to be big partition on SD card.

No, but you are on linux so it's very easy either to change /etc/fstab and 
mount some decent big partition of your SD card to /media/card. Or you can 
make bind mount anywhere where you want your dictionary. E.g. if you want it 
in /home/root do something like this (not tested):

mount -o bind /home/root/ /media/card
