This snippet from the Textmate bundle explains why:

# Set up TeX compiler, fallback to xelatex if document indicates it,
if grep -Esq '\\usepackage{.*(xunicode|fontspec)|program=xelatex' "$M"
	then DEF_TEX=xelatex

You can get around this simply placing the xetex stuff in .sty file.

Maybe someone can convince them to adopt the TeXshop way with the  
header lines.
