It's there, just not in the prefs dialog.

Poke around under /apps/metacity in gconf-editor, or use gconftool-2.

gconftool-2 --type string --set /apps/metacity/keybinding_commands/command_1 'xterm'

gconftool-2 --type string --set /apps/metacity/global_keybindings/run_command_1

may land in the prefs dialog sometime, but that would be done on level 
not here. (, I'm not sure if the bug is already filed)
