One first usage would be to allow to easily find a related feature in relation reference widget, when currently it is either a huge dropdown list or a click on the map tool.

The button could be used in a broader perspective (i.e. not only for the relation reference widget) and introduce a new "search feature(s)" widget that allows for searching features based on attributes or location. This widget would be opened with a separate button (like the select from canvas button now).

The combobox on the other hand shouldn't load all the options (if there are more than ~100 there is no longer any point in doing so) but have an autocompleter that works with requests on the data source and proposes matches based on this.
