Yes, that's what the manual advised too.  

But I find your request to be useful in another circumstance: when
there is a repeated scheduled item and a deadline.  In that case, the
meaning should be "repeat until the deadline".

You can now achieve this by setting 

(setq org-agenda-skip-scheduled-if-deadline-is-shown

which translates to: "Skip the agenda scheduled item when it repeats
after the deadline."

This feature is available from master.

Thanks for coming up with this idea and for the clear use-case!
