Thank you for the thorough explanation.
We believe that the request from the forum thread we pointed you to is exactly the same with the only difference the user there talks about the history navigation between different panes/view in the TabStrip, while you involve what action should be done when the history ends. As mentioned in that thread, currently the history is one for the whole application (pane) and the tabs cannot maintain its own stack of views for a history to be kept and what to do when it ends.
As you see, the Kendo UI guys also believe that this functionality makes sense, but would be a huge breaking change for the TabStrip widget. As suggested, it would be best to submit your vision on this functionality as a feature request at KendoUI UserVoice
portal, so that other users will be able to vote for it.
