What to do with clipped draws after leading?

Suppose I just finished leading a single-pitch sport route and set up an anchor for top rope. While being lowered, I don't unclip anything. Now my partner want to climb on TR, but he is finding that the rope is getting in the way of climbing because it still clipped into all the draws. Should the climber unclip while s/he climbs up on top rope? Or should the leader unclip the draws on the way down whilst being lowered? Should the top roper tie into the other end of the rope (so that the climber is underneath the draws and must unclip while climbing)? Or should one just leave everything clipped in and suck it up?

Advice much appreciated.
