In my novice days - mid-1980s, before Windows had become dominant on the desktop - I was working on an office automation suite. We introduced a clipboard mechanism with multiple clips, but the customers found it to complex in use. They were asking us to make something simpler, like what they had seen on PCs.

So we added an "anonymous" clip where you didn't have to identify it, similar to the simplistic mechanism in Windows and other systems. After that, we never heard any customer ever refer to the multiclip mechanism.

Users of today are certainly more sophisticated wrt. tool use than those of the 1980s. Still, I would personally continue to use the simplistic Ctrl-C Ctrl-V in 98% of the cases, rather than a more functional mechanism where I would have to choose. OK, there are still 2% left, so I do see the value of a multi clipboard. In a few special cases, that is.
