Comment (by cypherpunks):

 Clearing the clipboard when creating a new identity seems a bit excessive
 especially in cases where its contents wasn't set by Tor Browser in the
 first place. This behavior would also add a side effect to Tor Browser
 that affects the entire OS.

 The other suggestions are better because they reduce (instead of increase)
 the amount of interaction that Tor Browser has with the OS which is IMO
 the way to go.
