Comment (by swissspidy):

 I tested different queries on a local environment and also on some
 production systems with real data.

 Although the original query was never really slow, I've come to the
 conclusion that the proposed query is at least 40% faster in general.

 However, maybe we don't really need this query at all. It's not ''that''
 useful. I suggest either removing the select box completely (in favor of
 the text input) or adding an ajax autocomplete to the text input.

 Heck, we could even remove the whole meta box for new installs. Who uses
 that anyway?
