There are fewer query clauses, so it takes less time.  The "all values"
range *might* perform faster than a range with a specific endpoint,
although I'm not familiar enough with the code to say for sure.

Yes.  Probably a lot more efficient.  Boolean fields only have two
possible values, so queries on those fields tend to be extremely fast.
