James -
Have you looked into the "publish" checkbox?  I believe that only the agents set to 'publish' will appear in the PUI. (Sidebar: I'm curious about why you want to retain the duplicate heading, rather than merge? "Publish" would impact all occurrences of the agent, so if you needed to display the 'other' version in some cases, I think this won't work).

Efficiently applying the "publish" setting could be a larger question, of course.. As would making it user-friendly to your staff, as it is not always easy to tell which agents are published.

For what it's worth: exports do seem to include the unpublished agents, so if that is important to you, you'd need a different approach. You're focusing on DO here, but for example,  I notice that the EAD exports do include unpublished Agents, regardless of 'include unpublished' export option.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Suppression of Agent Headings Within Digital Objects

Is there a way to suppress Agent headings without suppressing entire Digital Objects? We have encountered some problems with duplication of Subject/Agent headings, and we thought this could be alleviated by suppressing select Agent headings (which we want to retain), but if there is a straightforward way of doing this without suppressing entire digital objects (which we don't want to suppress) the method is eluding us. Are we missing something obvious?  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
