User experiences serious performance issue with Payroll Run. Found that

[1] Everything is defined as element, including those what is usually defined as an input value of
an element.
[2] 80-90% of the elements are defined as Information element.
[3] Have only one huge Fast Formula per Payroll.

The huge formula has 200+ lines for defaulting, and 200+ lines for Alias. Every time the formula is called by an element, will all the lines in the formula be processed? The performance trace of Payroll Run shows 99% of elapsed time used in the Formula call.
