But you do agree that a shortcut dimension would suffice?

Sounds extremely useful. Something simpler could also do: Why not
create a rank of important places, poswards from the home cell along
d.shortcuts? All the normal editing - hopping and delete - would work
right away. We could just add a binding for "add the current cell to
the shortcut list". 

The user would then use this new binding when she creates a new
important cell. Whenever she needs to get to one of these, just press
'Home', rotate to show d.shortcuts (also a key binding?).

Definitely, when the multi-window scheme is ready, I'd like this "go
home and rotate to show d.shortcuts" to happen in a new window.

Something like this, and the 'only locally euclidean' could concretely
mean something to the users =)
