What I’d like is for the tempo markings to show up (at most) once per

I could remove the “rit.” marking from the one of the sets of “part

Surely I can’t be the first person to run into this problem;  what’s
the best practice for this sort of situation?

Not sure if this is "best" practice, but you could always separate the markup from the notes:

\version "2.19.82"

partInotes = { c'1 c'1 }
partIInotes = { e'1 c'1 }
partMarkup = { s1-"rit." s1-"a tempo" }

\score { \new Staff << \partcombine \partInotes \partIInotes \partMarkup >> }
\score { \new Staff << \partInotes \partMarkup >> }
\score { \new Staff << \partIInotes \partMarkup >> }

There might be some gotchas with the above approach, so perhaps the better solution would be to use edition-engraver [1].
