Yes, it's mostly about execution time. Using Acceleo for expressions
allow for possibly very complex queries on your models, but its comes
with some up-front cost (mainly parsing and compilation). "feature:" is
very limited (only direct access to a named attribute or reference), but
has almost no overhead compared to calling eGet(featureName). When you
don't need the full power of a Acceleo and can use feature: instead, it
is always recommended to do so.
The same idea applies to "var:" (for direct access to a variable's
value) and "service:" (to invoke custom Java code). Both things can be
done through Acceleo too, but when your expression does nothing more,
using the special syntax will give you better performance.
