I think the idea that the braking power is not there with mechanicals is completely ridiculous, especially compared to the wide profile cantilevers typically employed on cross race bikes. That said, why do cross bikes need more braking power? The amount of traction cross bikes have on dirt certainly wouldn't seem to necesitate any additional braking power. Of course it would be nice to have brakes that didn't clog and wear out rims.
