This is certainly a limitation for Zotero (I noticed it as well when I tried it out a little while ago) but I'm not sure that it's a problem for CSL. As I understand it, CSL defines formatting for typeset citations and bibliography entries. It's not meant to handle tasks such as cross-referencing chapter entries to their book entries -- that should be the job of the software (Zotero, Mendeley, etc.) which is using CSL for its formatting. My experience with CSL is limited, though, so I could be wrong about this. At any rate, CSL seems to be achieving a critical mass of usage and support, and there's a huge number of predefined, publicly available styles ( https://github.com/citation-style-language/styles/wiki ).
