If you make this possible, it should rename the AD-object with the workstation name too. Otherwise it would kick the worksation out of the AD, without deleting the object for it.

Powershell 3.0 and newer has the "Rename-Computer" cmdlet to rename the computer along with the corresponding AD object. Scheduling this as a powershell one-liner in the "Run Script" quick task with ZCM should do what you are asking for. See https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh849792(v=wps.620).aspx for details on Rename-Computer.
