That would be too invasive, I believe. The whole cache would be flushed,
even all data which are not related too.

And there might be the case, that a file is registered in RCS (or
whatever backend is used) outside Emacs. Tramp would still have stale
cache data for "/su:address@hidden:/tmp/RCS/blah,v" then.
