I'm sure there are many other examples. IMHO Octave should strive to be better than matlab, not just a clone

While I share your sentiments, I believe it's a design decision that's been taken? Octave aims to be compatible with MATLAB, wherever possible.

I think we should strive for "unidirectional compatibility" such that Octave can run *any* MATLAB code (rendering MATLAB unnecessary) but MATLAB might not be able to run all Octave code. This allows us to have both compatibility and superiority.
