konsole doesn't clear its history as xterm do when it receives the RIS sequence (\ec) (e.g. via 'reset' console tool). Maybe something to increase compatibility?

Not sure about this.  I think it is useful to be able to reset the terminal without losing history - although you can do that via the Edit menu as well.  In KDE 4 we do support another control sequence from Xterm to clear the history (see http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=158235)

While it's nice to have a feature to clear the scrollback and keep history, I can confirm that this is still true, the 'reset' command just add newlines, without reseting the scrollview. this works correctly in vte and xterm.
