Create cross-platform URL shortcut files

Perhaps but I don't think it's reasonable to expect Apple to implement every single Microsoft-specific way of doing something. Especially when it isn't an actual, industry-standard format.

Create cross-platform URL shortcut files

Industry standard... Hmmmm...

Well, as far as I am concerned, any chance to avoid using a resource fork in OS X should be embraced. Whether the data contained in the file itself is useful on another platform or not, putting that data in the resource fork prevents it from even reaching the other platform.
