For scrolling through a document looking for particular topics, the XML view should be as efficient as the Map Editor view, if not more. Can you elaborate on what makes it more cumbersome?
If you use the XML view a lot, you might want to set the option to make maps open in this view by default. You can do this in the Tools > DITA Options dialog, on the Map Editor tab.
