Lightroom CC: Option to disable duplicate faces in the same picture (face detection / recognition)

I have recently gone through my entire catalogue of family pictures (over 60k) and tagged my family members in each picture. I love how face detection works in Lightroom, is great, but I think it would be even better if users could have the option to enable or disable duplicates on the same photo. Once I have confirmed that, for example, my sister is in this picture, I would like Lightroom to stop suggesting that other people are my sister and instance suggest a different person. I think this would speed up the process of tagging people a lot! I know people can be reflected on mirrors or an image can be a collage of several pictures, but I would say that in 98% of the cases one person is not gonna appear twice in the same picture and if it does a single tag would be sufficient to find that picture again.

It would have to have an override option, because twins are far more likely than mirrors or collages!

But even with twins, let say you confirmed the tag of twin 1, then the other person is definitely not twin 1, it might still be twin 2. I think in that case it would actually be much more useful to make the tagging process faster! I'm not saying to stop recognizing their face, I'm just saying that once you confirm a face then the rest of the faces in that picture are no longer shown as a suggestion of that person.
