I've seen non-drive spokes break before, which makes me think that they still carry some of the torque (think about it, the gears are turning the hub, which turn both sides of spokes). For that reason, I cross both sides of my rear wheel. It may be far on the safe side, but it's only about 20 grams difference anyway.
