Great question, yes if you anticipate the statuses table containing lots of rows then some optimisation of the query will be beneficial. The same issue applies wherever the N+1 problem occurs, as even when using $model->with() or $model->load() if the tables being eager loaded have lots of rows or columns this could also lead to performance issues.

Your suggestion is a good one, an alternative approach might be to cache statuses and then refresh the cache whenever the statuses are changed, it all depends upon the table size and the use cases.
