I think that would stop the listeners from working.

Unless the test plan includes a listener that saves copies of every
sample result, then at most two samples will be saved (current and
previous) per thread.

Is there really a problem with memory usage for high load tests -
unless the samples are huge?

The risk is that clearing the data will cause subtle test failures
which are very hard to debug.
