If a descent amount of tages (2000+) have been created then it takes awhile at 'Select Tags' dialog to
load all tags.

[Steps to reproduce]:
1.) Set up a Alf v4.2.2 instance
2.) Apply the JavaScript Console AMP - used to create about 2000+ tags
3.) Log in as 'admin'
4.) Create site 'Test123'
5.) Browse to JavaScript Console = Admin Tools -> Javascript Console
6.) Select traget space like 'var space = /Sites/test123/documentLibrary'
7.) Execute following code:

var myfolder = companyhome.createFolder("New Test Folder");

for (var i=0;i<100;i++){
  var thisdocument = myfolder.createFile("testC " + i + ".txt");
  thisdocument.properties.content.guessMimetype("tag_test" + i + ".txt");
  for (var y=0;y<20;y++){
  thisdocument.addTag("myTagC" + i + y);
  logger.log("Document number " + i + " was created");

8.) Go to documentsLibrary of site 'Test123' and click on 'Edit Properties' of a random document.
9.) Click 'Select' in the 'Tags' section
10.) Measure the time it takes to load the tags' list
11.) For about 2000 tags it is about 5s for 6000+ tags it is about 11s

[Expected Behaviour]:
The behaviour is understandable, but is there any chance to improve the performance.

[Observed Behaviour]:
It takes a while to load the tags list.

[Analysis to date]:
1.) Behaviour is reproducible
2.) Pagination at the particular might help to shorten the load time
