If these queries are really produced by the core I seriously doubt that 
they know what they are doing (sorry, I don't mean to offend anybody, 
but the example query really sucks.
It does however explain why uncached TYPO3 pages are so terrible slow..

It's no problem to use LIKE, but if you are using LIKE with a wildcard 
at the beginning (LIKE '%,0') MySql is unable to use the index.

In my humble opinion LIKE '%,0' is a much bigger problem it shouldn't be 

To speed up the site you could install the extension 'cachemgm' and set 
a scheduler to cache the pages automatically at night.
