Can you please suggest a better wording that I can add to the

Well, this is the first time I've heard that the \crossStaff shouldn't be applied to the lower notes.  The documentation ( ) shows an example with the \crossStaff in the bass clef staff:

\layout {
  \context {
    \consists "Span_stem_engraver"

  \new PianoStaff <<
    \new Staff {
      <b d'>4 r d'16\> e'8. g8 r\!
      e'8 f' g'4 e'2

      \clef bass
      \crossStaff { <e g>4 e, g16 a8. c8} d
      g8 f g4 c2
