If the assistants are considered a decision maker in your sales processes, I'd argue you absolutely should include them in your database. As far as keeping the data up to date and avoiding junk from popping up, you might want to consider doing quarterly or annual data cleanup campaigns where you're offering some sort of incentive to encourage your contacts to self-update their information & add any new contacts.
We've also employed a checkbox on all our contacts for marking contacts no longer at the company. This pulls them out of email campaigns similarly to how the marketing suspension/opt out lists work. You can't totally automate this cleanup though, a lot of the responsibility falls to your sales & AM teams.
