Is this an actual query that took a long time, or just an example?
My guess is that "q" is actually much more expensive.

If a filter is excluded, the base DocSet for faceting must be re-computed.
This involves intersecting all the DocSets for the other filters not
excluded (which should all be cached) with the DocSet of the query
(which won't be cached and will need to be generated).  That last step
can be expensive, depending on the query.
