Some of my deleted contacts (I'd say the Gmail one, but I'm unsure of that) just keep on coming back after rebooting the phone.

I guess this would go along with

If instead of having to hard-delete the contacts you could just mark them as hidden, this would solve many syncing issues.

Yes, we should probably hide contacts which you've requested to delete, that originate from a synchronized service. The worst offender for unwanted is probably Google's hangout/chat contacts - since they're added to your IM contact list automatically after any chat.

Well, not really hide them forever. Say I delete my ex-girlfriend's number because I want to get over, maybe she'll text me back some time later and I don't want to confuse an "opportunity" with someone randomly texting me. In other words, I still want to see the name over the SMS.
