I will have a go at this. My suggestion may not answer your query but I
think that I might be able to give you a clue of a way to get a display.
1) Add a new person by the same name - call this X for the discussion below
and add a memo tag to it to say why you have created this person.
2) Now in candidate A's tags make X a witness to those A events that you
jointly to see with B's events.
3) Now in candidate B's tags make X a witness to those B events that you
jointly to see with A's events.
Now look at the person view of X. All the joint events will appear in that
view, but your data is still intact. You can easily remove the X witness on
an event if you need to. (You may get some strange outputs in narratives if
you include witnessed events.)
