Lightroom CC: Cover photo of tagged people

Simple thing could help using the new People feature a lot - if you open tags of the photo and see faces of tagged people, those faces should be from that actual photo, not a cover photo of that person.

Why? Because people recognition does not work 100%. And Ligthroom creates virtual "persons" without names that are hard to tag manually (and fix fault person assignment) if you do not know what face on the photo is being wrong tagged - that wrong tag has often a cover picture from another photo so you can not match it on the actual photo. If we had the same functionality but with tagged people cover picture from actual photo, it would help us a lot to fix incorrect tagging and make People feature much more useful.

You could say that showing position of the tagged person on the picture would be even better, but idea above is much more simple to implement I guess.

So just to clarify, this in the Keywords panel of the Detail view, that you'd like to see the thumbnail of the person in the photo rather than the cover photo for the person (or some other way of identifying which person in the photo links to each name), right?

Yes, that is correct. Thank you for adding further information.

Definitely agree with this. I have some photos with more people than tags (some faces have been missed altogether). So, in some instances I have, say, 10 people, 8 tags with 7 named and 1 unnamed. Which of the remaining 3 faces does the unnamed tag belong to? It only has a best guess photo not relating to the photo being looked at.
