This is just a bug.  Fixed now.

This is what org-goto is for.  You can select the interface
to be used with the variable org-goto-interface.  Set it to
outline-path-completion and it will work like refiling.
You can configure the maximum depth for this command
with org-goto-max-level.

It will not work like this, but I think, in the end, you
would find that what you propose might feel slow again.
I believe you get the fatest interface by using

(setq org-outline-path-complete-in-steps nil)

and using ido for doing the completion on the full path.

The main difference between org-goto and calling org-refile
with a prefix argument is that the former always gives you
all headings to a certain depth in the current file, while
the latter offer a selection of important headings in
potentially many files.

I believe that many people only use the refile interface,
and then have both agenda targets, and current file targets
configured in org-refile-targets.
