#2: linear polarizer?

Yes, Macx has already guessed that correctly.

#3: shifted WB or other in camera adjustment to reduce sensitivity to the purple? (I see the flare is still present, but not blown out and less objectionable)

A mere shift of WB would shift the WB everywhere in the image. But the ceiling looks the same as far as WB is concerned. It's only the color of the flare that differs.
