Im thinking even if you had separate tables for content types, you'd still need a master table to track all your objects anyway, even if all it does is list content types. Either way, you've got JOINs, so it's probably harder to work outside the default Drupal model (though index's are one route for custom code, as discussed).

There are advantages and disadvantages to all approaches, this module though, while it hasn't been improved in awhile is the right step towards what you want. It should work with Views as it implements the FieldAPI and Views works with the FieldAPI.

O and it also might not work with the lastest FieldAPI. So there is a development cost to this, so its worth evaluating the development cost vs the performance gains. Oftentimes, it is better to throw money at a performance problem first, then code.
