Please add the basic feature that lets Admins rename an unassigned softphone. As it is, Admins can only rename desk phones but not softphones.

Isn't the softphone part of the user account and a physical phone a separate account?  I'm trying to grasp what you are asking for - you are wanting to reassign a softphone, which is a user to another user?  If so, (not ideally) but you can always rename the users account (but beware all the original users configurations carry over).

A softphone is not really part of the user account, despite how tightly RingCentral integrates the two. For example, if you delete a user, the softphone will become unassigned with its associated phone number. I have about ten unassigned softphones that I cannot rename. Of course, I can always rename the softphone before I delete a user, but my point is that I shouldn't have to. You can easily rename a desk phone, so why can't you rename a softphone? It's a basic feature that's lacking.
