I think there is a reason Locke/ MIB wants to go home.

Did you see Avatar? James Cameron finished the script in 1995, but the technology did not exist to create his vision. He had to wait until science caught up with his vision, 14 years later.
I think MIB is in the same boat. He had to wait until Dharma brought technology to the Island to create his loophole to try to initiate his plan to "go home".
