SharePoint Online Site Renaming

What is one of the most long overdue requests as it relates to SharePoint Online or SharePoint Server? Being able to rename site addresses would be the answer.

You have Admin access to the Admin Portal.

And you have already purchased licensing or have available licenses for the users being added.
