The Model Explorer's reliance on (a fork of) EMF Facet for
customization does tend to introduce a lot of work into the calculation
of the tree structure. I'm currently looking into ways to improve
performance, here (see, for example, bug 441857 ).
Conceptually, looking up some model element in the tree isn't
straight-forward, because customizations could present the same element
in any number of ways (even multiple times). Maintaining mappings for
quick access can be assumed to have its own performance challenges.
I'm afraid I don't have any answers for you at the moment, but I
certainly am open to ideas ...
