I like OmniRom on my Note II, But I miss very important feature when I change from CyanogenMod to OmniRom, "Privacy Guard".

I know that there is "App Permissions" option in Settings, but privacy guard is easy and fast, I mean control permission for every single app is difficult.

I hope Omni team add this feature in next update.

Do you use Xposed? If so have you tried Xprivacy?

Yeah I miss that to. Just set privacy guard enabled by default for new apps and forget about it. Its a neat feature
Also the permission is not blocked, the app just recieve empty sms, contacts, call history etc.

it's the best permission manager around, no doubt.
but it's waaaay too complicated for people who just want simple privacy switch.
I think it's a good idea since I do plan on installing Omni on my girlfriend's N4, and she currently uses CM's Privacy Guard and loves it.

I think privacy and firewall functions shouldn't require external apps. Omni should offer the same level of detail and power

And I'm sure they will. Take a look at their blog. You have to remember that Omni is still a young project, and they can't code these features over night.
