Shiloh happened to be one of the places the Ark resided in during the period of the Judges. It lost all significance permanently as soon as the Temple was built in Jerusalem. There will never again be another "home of the Ark",or "new commandments from G-d", for that matter.

Shiloh only resembles "He who was sent" when written in English. A more phonetic rendering would replace the "h" with a "ch", pronounced gutteraly. Hebrew roots are pretty much inviolate; their meanings do not cross over simply because some letters look alike.
