An easy improvement for Lightroom 'Import' feature would be if it remembered images you had already imported and 'deleted from disc'. 

 

Currently your rejected images from pervious imports are detected as 'new images' when you put the memory card back in.

 

It would be a simple matter to keep the exif data from deleted photos (e.g. file size, camera, lens, date and time taken) in an 'already rejected' table in the database, then when they come up again on a memory card, Lightroom knows this file WAS imported but 'deleted from disc'.

I will assume you do bot keep photos on an SD card forever. That this is during a short period of time, Perhaps during a Photo trip, or a Photo Shoot over a few days when you did some importing after the shoot, and did a bit if cutting out clutter.

 

For me, if these are absolutely non recoverable rejects, I would only remove them for now so that LrC does not bother me with them on later imports. I would just remove them, not delete them, until shooting during the trip/shoot/project was done, and  I was back at home/office, where upon, I would delete them, Make additional backups of the keepers, etc, and format in camera the SD cards.
