There's currently a lot of work going on to give this kind of
functionality to BibDesk. Collections inside a bibtex database (similar
to collections in iTunes) are definitely coming, but I can't tell you
when it will actually be useable. You can get a glimpse of the future
if you save your bib-file as BibDesk library and then re-open it. Parts
of the UI are already, they just don't a lot.
