DataObject:get doesn't seem to well thought through and optimised.

DNA to answer your question DataObject::get is not (very) optimized and it does comes with the associated performance implications (try doing a DataObject::get('Page') on a ~20,000 page site!). You should use SS_Cache to cache any large sets from the front end if you want to keep tabs on performance.

Planning has been underway for how to replace the current accessing structure ( Sam has already tried his hand at initial versions of the new functionality so it'll hopefully make its way into SilverStripe 3.0! Keep watching this space.

Another area a couple devs are investigating is how to reduce the number of queries SS makes. When you save a page in some parts of the CMS it can make a crazy amount of queries (one dev had ~700 per site publish) so its one area where the framework could use a bit of a cleanup.
