"Dished" means the hub's flanges are not centered with respect to the rim. Rear wheels have been dished for a long time. Only recently, with the advent of disc brakes, have front wheels become dished. Curiously enough, rear disc brakes tend to make the rear wheel less dished, after years of increasing cog count made them insanely dished.
