there is a correlation between the channel and the folder...there is risk of breaking that by changing the foldername. I just tried this again and now get a 404 error even if I changed the foldername to the same changed channelname

You _can_ rename a folder that is connected to a channel, however it will not change the folder name but will create a new folder with the new name and leave the old one intact.

Renaming a Team doesn't rename it's associated site collection or mailbox. They still work (it doesn't break correlation), but it makes it hard to tell which site or mailbox matches the team, because the name no longer match.
Eg. We had a Team created as "News & Information". The team owner later renamed it "Press Office" When they later asked for support for the "Press Office" team site, I couldn't find that in SharePoint central admin center....because in SharePoint admin center, it was still named "News & Information"

Thanks! Is there one for the Team mailbox too?
We noticed that (both address & display name) also doesn't get changed with a Team rename.
[addendum: that roadmap feature only mentions channels, and therefore only mentions the site being renamed on private channels. It doesn't mention Team & site renaming outside of channels. Also, it unfortunately doesn't seem to include GCC]
