Screenshot of 30em width in default sort field

So I've looked into this a bit and took some screenshots.

Currently this is set in the class .oo-ui-textInputWidget and is set to 20em. The text input widget appears in Options -> Categories, Options -> Page Settings, and Insert -> Reference.

These 3 fields all look acceptable at a width of 30em. We could also go for 100% width of the div. I like the look of this in the two Options areas, although this looks a bit odd in the Reference dialog "group by" field. I think that even 20em was too wide for it to begin with- maybe we should add a special class here?

Any opinions? I like both 30 em and 100%, and since reference dialog is likely to undergo radical UI changes the size of the group by field in the reference dialog could be ignored for the time being.
