Lightroom CC: Should be smarter about which faces to identify

I uploaded 135K photos, and Lightroom CC identified 24K faces in them. Vast majority are of no interest to me, but I have to go through each one and mark them as "Do not show" -- which takes a lot of time. In the meantime, having so many identified faces in the index gums up the works. It takes about 20 seconds to drill down into a face and about 20 seconds for the effects of the editing (merging and naming the face) to take effects. With this many photos and this many faces, everything in the People view has become slow.

If Lightroom is identifying faces in the crowds, it should not. It should use a judgment of the relative size of a face to the total are of the photo as well as the density of faces on the photo. If there is a face in focus, such as an athlete performing in the fields, and faces out of focus, such as spectators watching him, the spectators should ignore. With all AI achievements by Adobe, it should be easier for Sensei (or whoever is doing the faces) to pre-guess which faces will be of interest and which will not. Also, there could be configurable parameters for the tolerance of errors in omitting faces. The parameters may deal with blurriness, relative size, and density of faces in the photo.
