My suggestion would be to use a key binding for selecting a word; from 
TextExtras DefaultKeyBinding.dict, opt-w will select a word, which is 
handy with the citation service.  For instance, I type \cite{mykey, hit 
opt-w to select "mykey", then cmd-K to complete the citekey (or title 
if you use that service).  That doesn't help trim the list, but it 
saves a few mouse movements.

BibDesk's citation autocompletion feature ties into the OS completion 
feature, so you get the standard popup right in the document.  It's 
nice :).
