Just to be clear: BibDesk supports items with the crossref field just  
fine.  You can add it, edit it, and save it.

Nothing has been done, or will be done for version 1, because we (the  
developers) have no clear idea of what people who use this feature  
want.  It's unfortunate that BibDesk is unusable for you, although I  
know a number of people (myself included) who are using BibDesk with  
large files.

If anyone has suggestions for crossref, please note them in this RFE  
to we can track the issue  <http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?
