Certainly not.  I mean readable Unicode characters such as ü are  
displayed in BibDesk, but it converts that to the less readable {\"u}  
when saving the file...so you can still use /bin/ed to edit it if you  
want :).  This is particularly convenient when you copy/paste from  
sources that display accented characters.
