The only way that I know of doing anything similar to this is to open the image in ACR and crop.  When you save the cropped image as a psd file, check the "save cropped pixels" option.  When you open the cropped psd file into CS5, you can select Image>Reveal All.

In Cs5, the crop tool's options bar includes Cropped Area with choices of Delete or Hide.

thanks Bryan/ John.
The hide -- seems you need to dupe the layer to have it not greyed out.

But then, what?  I turned off the top layer, and the bottom layer still has the crop. How you you go back? Can it preserve the original image?

Yes, you need layers to produce the non destructive crop feature. Just double clicking on the bkgnd layer and making a non (layer 0) layer provides this option.
