Ignore faces outside crop.

I want Lightroom to ignore pictures outside crop. This request was posted in various ways 3 years ago, but doesn’t appear to have gone anywhere.
Example: I take pictures at my kids’ althetic events. Many faces in the crowd/audience get the box with suggestions to fill. I have to delete all these before a crop the image, otherwise the faces remain active but “hidden” outside fo the crop. If I do all the cropping with the face detection turned off then apply face detection, it still highlights those faces. To undo these options I have to un-crop, delete, re-crop. I can go to the naming page where all unnamed faces appear, but I sometimes I have to go through literally 100s of faces to find the ones that I do want to name. And.... the naming page does not show the faces with tone adjustments from Development module. If they are dark, I cannot recognize them.

Totally agree, since I posted similar requests for spot removal reasons just a few days ago and also posted the same four years ago.
